You get one point added to your score for each correct answer on the SAT, and lose one-quarter of a point for each wrong answer (except for Grid-ins). If you leave a question blank, you neither gain nor lose points. Incorrect answers to Grid-ins have no effect on your score. The totals are added up for all the Verbal and Math questions, and that produces two raw scores.

These numbers are not your SAT scores. The raw scores are converted into scale scores, each on a scale of 200 to 800, and these are the scores that are reported to you and the schools you apply for. The reports include sub-scores as well, but most schools focus on the two main scores. The average scaled score (on a 200- to 800-point scale) for either Math or Verbal is 500, for an average combined score of 1000 points.
