The SAT comparison is wrong. How is the 83rd percentile average? Average would be the 50th percentile.

You're right, that table is way off. 1500 is the average SAT score, so "average" would be there. 2400 is the "Best. Score. Ever.", and 1 is abysmal, of course, but the rest are all inaccurate. "Not good at all" should be much lower, as the "average" SAT score is in fact 1500. "Pretty Good" should also be lower, although I don't know exactly where

The problem is also that the exams are not always comparable. For example in SAT II I scored near maximum without any preparation near maximum (English is not my first language BTW) - while one could not necessary say so about other exams. Additionally I scored highier in the advanced math then basic math.

In addition it may vary from year to year so probably the best would be to look on university tables (like UCAS points) and compare but they still can be biased.
