    There's yet another new SAT? Just out of curiosity, what's the highest possible score?

    This might help a bit>

    Looking at the way the new test is scored, there seems to be a bit of point inflation which I'm sure universities will take into account.

    Looking at the tables a score of 1200 on the new test would equate to a 1130 on the old test. Using these numbers the OP's score of 1000 on the new test would equate to about 930 to 940 on the old test.

    What will remain to be seen is if organizations that use a minimum score for their scholarships will increase the minimums due to the new test scoring calculations.

    To the OP,
    If I were you I would sign up to take the test again or take the ACT. The 1000 score, while above the minimum, is not high enough to get you the Max points on the academic section of the Interview sheet, losing these points will not help your chances. You will need an 1100 SAT or a 24 ACT......unless things have changed again of course.

    It will be interesting to see how all the various institutions adjust to the new SAT. I noticed just the other day that the Air Force increased the minimum SAT for its ROTC scholarship from 1180 (SAT pre March 2016) to 1250. Pretty much in line with that Wash Post article.
