Keep in mind, a SAT score alone won't get you admitted. It's equally important to have the GPA that the college is expecting for incoming students.

Is a 950 a good SAT score?

A score of 950 is pretty low. It places you in the bottom 31st percentile nationally out of the 1.7 million test takers of the SAT entrance exam. The score indicates you've done a well below average job answering the questions on the Math and Evidence-Based Reading & Writing sections of the test. Since your score is on the lower end of the range, consider taking a test prep course and re-taking the SAT to see if you can do better.

What is the ACT equivalent to a 950 SAT score?

For comparison purposes, a 950 on the SAT converts to a 17 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.
