Interpreting Test Results
The Hebrew University converts SAT scores using criteria that take into account both the similarities and differences between the SAT and the Psychometric Test.
The conversion of the old SAT is carried out on the Reading and Math sections only; the University does not use the score on the Writing section. The highest combined score from one examination session is accepted. Some programs give a greater weight to the Math score (67% Math and 33% ERW). Conversion tables are available on the following link. The type of score used and the scores required for the various majors are updated regularly on the website.
