Only "new SAT" scores are included in the Admissions Tracker Results summary for the college class of 2021. The "new SAT", which was introduced in March 2016, has two sections: Mathematics (M) and Evidence-Based Reading and Writing (ERW), each of which has a score range of 200-800.
Admissions Tracker Results for the college class of 2021 only include "new SAT" scores. Your scores are not displaying because your Admissions Profile appears to contain "old SAT" scores. If you added your SAT scores before the Profile form was revised to allow entry of "new SAT" scores, you will need to update your scores in your Profile. Once you update your Profile, your scores will display here. Update your SAT scores.
