Georgia, National SAT Scores Stay Flat

ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia's average score on this year's SAT college entrance exam was unchanged from last year, mirroring a national trend as scores were generally stagnant for a third year.

Nationwide, African-American students made slight gains, the College Board said Thursday.

In Georgia, the average score remained the same as last year at 1,452 out of a possible 2,400. That's 46 points below the national average of 1,498.

Nationally, scores also remained about the same as the previous year. Students scored an average 496 in reading, down one point from 2011. Average math scores have remained stuck at 514 over the last three years. And the average writing score, 488, was down one point from 2011.

The top score possible on each section is 800 and the highest possible score is 2400.
