How to Read Your Score Results

Our West Point admissions score calculator is meant to be used as a tool to help you determine your level of competitiveness. The score provided is an estimate and should be treated as such. We estimate that the percentile error is +/-2%.

This West Point Admissions Calculator gives you a score out of 8000, as this is how West Point admissions calculates the Whole Candidate Score. The percentile provided is based off of a recently admitted West Point class.

The margins are fairly small to move up in admitted candidate rankings. Adding 12 points moves the candidate up 1%. Adding 120 points is a 10% jump. For reference, a 100-point increase in SAT Math, for example, equates to approximately 200 WCS points. For the verbal section, a 100-point jump increases the candidate’s WCS points by 150.

The following chart shows that SAT/ACT Math/Science is the single most important factor to your admission. Focusing on improving that category, if able, will have the largest impact on your admission.
