Hi there! We don't reveal the actual score, but instead the percentile. This is because the actual score means little, but how you did compared to other students means a lot. The percentiles can also fluctuate based on what kinds of scores are given out over time (so a 9 a couple months ago might be better/worse relatively percentile-wise than a 9 now). Those are some of the main reasons we don't reveal your score. Hope that makes sense, and thanks for using CollegeVine!
