Is a 1210 on the SAT a good score?

Yes, a score of 1210 is quite good. It places you in the top 77th percentile nationally out of the 1.7 million students taking the SAT entrance exam this year. The score indicates you've done a well above above average job answering the questions on the Math and Evidence-Based Reading & Writing sections of the test.

For comparison purposes, a 1210 on the SAT converts to a 25 on the ACT based on the College Board / ACT concordance. Not all colleges report both SAT and ACT score admission data so you should check our comparable listings for both standardized tests to find academically similar schools.

Important: If you took the SAT prior to March 2016, your test was scored on the old 2400 point scale. All SAT scores on this site have been updated to reflect the SAT 1600 point scale per the College Board's concordance tables.
