    It would be a 1760 on the 2400 scale (Critical Reading + Writing + Math) or 1160-1200 on the 1600 scale (CR + Math). Of course, they are two different tests so any conversion number you get will just be what they consider to be an approximation.

    Act Equivalent To Sat

    The SAT completely f's with your head-- just throwing that out there... completely and radically different from the ACT...

    I got a 27 on the ACT and a 1780 on SAT. If you suck at English, forget a good SAT score.

    A 27 is roughly equivalent to an 1800 (600, 600, 600-- according to my top choice-Russell Group- British universities)... a 27 on this chart is equivalent to 1820- so I scored below because the SAT will undoubtedly screw with your head-- despite all the months and weeks of prep ahead of time.

    a 26 is equivalent to 1760.

    Here is this chart referenced:


    Source(s): I got a 5 on my AP English Language and Composition score. A perfect score. Top 10% country. Not good enough for the 1800 I needed on my SAT-- retaking this fall. Good luck, try to practice as much as you can. Good luck to you! :)

    A 26 on the ACT is in the 1170-1200 score range on the SAT. They say it's an 1190 as a single score.

    This is just for the critical reading and math sections of the SAT.
