## How do you convert old SAT scores to new scores?

Without the College Board’s concordance table, you might imagine that you could just multiply the old SAT score by 2/3 to get your new SAT score. For example, 2400 * 2/3 = 1600. Or, 1800 * 2/3 = 1200. In fact, new SAT scores are much higher than this simple formula would predict.
