The highest score possible on the math section of the SAT is an 800. Based on the College and Career Readiness Benchmark for the current SAT, the benchmark score is 530. This benchmark means that there is a 75% likelihood of achieving a C or higher in related, first-semester, credit-bearing college courses.
While it’s good to aim for this benchmark or higher, a good math SAT score depends on what schools you’re hoping to gain acceptance to.
