What's the highest possible SAT score for 2024?

I'm taking the SAT in 2024 and I've been hearing a lot about the changing scoring system. Can anyone here clarify what's the maximum possible score for the 2024 SAT? Has it changed from the earlier 1600 max? Thanks in advance!

The maximum possible score for the SAT in 2024 is still 1600. The test is divided into two sections: Evidence-Based Reading and Writing (EBRW) and Math. Each section is scored on a scale of 200 to 800, and the two section scores are combined to produce the total score.

Although there have been changes to the SAT format and scoring over the years, the current 1600-point maximum has remained in place since the College Board's most recent test redesign in 2016. So, for the 2024 SAT, you can still aim for the highest score of 1600 by preparing well and familiarizing yourself with the format and content of the test. Good luck!
