The Average SAT Score For Every Major

Although an increasing number of US schools prefer to place more value on a student’s High school records, SAT scores still play a role in the admission process. This is because SAT scores generally puts your application into perceptive for the admission officers. They serve as a way to compare you with other students in the discipline you are applying for. Why else do you think some parents pay thousands of dollars for SAT-prep tutorials for their children? The answer is simple: They want their children to be admitted into good schools and probably with full or some financial aid.

The college Board, an organization which administers the SAT has released a tabled report of the average SAT Score for every prospective major.


Here is the report:


As you can see from the table, Mathematics and Statistics, Social Sciences, English languages, Literature/letter, Foreign Languages, Literature, and Linguistics, came out ahead of majors like Engineering.

      Hi Samuel Osei. Anyone is eligible to write the SAT in Ghana once you’ve registered…Since you didn’t do well on the WASSCE, you may need your High school transcript in addition to your SAT 1 or SAT 2 (SAT Reasoning Test) depending on the course you want to study.
