Ask a silly question

July 20, 1999

What's the lowest score you can get on an SAT test? Is it true that you get several hundred points just for filling out the name section?

The lowest combined score would be 400 points, which really means zero because the two portions of the Scholastic Assessment Test are scored on a scale of 200 to 800, said College Board spokesman Kevin Gonzalez.

But you can't even get 400 unless you answer one question - incorrectly, of course - in each of the test's seven sections, Gonzalez said.

If any of the seven answer sections are completely blank, the scoring machine won't grade the test and you'll have no score at all, he said.
