The College Board doesn’t release essay scores:

When I sat down to write this post, I discovered something interesting: the College Board doesn’t actually release an average SAT essay score.

They do, however, release an average composite Writing score for the nation, which includes the SAT essay score.

The average Writing score is approximately 510, though it varies from year to year.

Now here’s the good news – as a professional SAT tutor, I’ve got a pretty good idea of the average SAT essay score.

My estimate of the average SAT essay score:

Based on my professional tutoring experience (I’ve worked with over 100 students on SAT prep), the average SAT essay score is right in the middle!

The essay is scored on a 2-12 scale, and I’m going to estimate that the average SAT essay score is between a 6 and a 8.

I see a lot of scores in that range, a few that are a 4 or 5, a decent number that are a 9 or a 10, and a very, very few that score an 11 or a perfect 12.

Scores below 4 are pretty rare if you use a good basic essay structure and stay on topic.

The College Board has released SAT new score release policies. The good news for test takers is that they can receive their SAT scores faster, starting this October. Typically, the College Board will release the SAT scores would take four to six weeks after the exam. Under the new guidelines, you will get your SAT scores two weeks after the test day.

However, keep in mind that the new guidelines apply to SAT taken in the months of October, November, December, March and May. For August and June, the SAT scores will take up to six weeks to be released. The SAT essay scores will be released five days after test takers receive the scores for evidence-based reading and writing and math sections. The students will receive an email when their SAT scores are available. The scores will be sent to colleges within days after they are made available to the test takers.
