The SAT Test

For candidates who have taken the SAT test, the following translation formula is applied:
R – Critical Reading SAT score
M – Math SAT score
Psychometric score = M * 0.67 + R * 0.33

The SAT can be calculated here.

The ACT Test

Candidates who have taken the ACT test should convert, first, the score to SAT score scale and then convert the grade to the Psychometric Test Scale.

In all cases where there are multiple grades for the psychometric test or the SAT, the best grade will be taken into consideration.
