SAT I + School transcript of record for grades 10 & 11 THE COMPOSITE SCORE (CS) and how it is generated by AUB Composite Score=50% SAT I + 50% school grades = (Critical reading + mathematical reasoning) + Grade 10 + Grade 11
AUB follows a scale of 800 School grades from grade 10 and grade 11 are converted to a scale of 800 How is this done ?
If a student is above school average he will get above 500/800 If a student is below school average he gets below 500/800
AUB takes the average of the IC students applying this year Every student who gets the average of IC students is automatically granted 500/800
Every student is compared only against the group applying from his school This means that if the students’ average in school X is 90/100, the student who gets a 90 gets a 500/800 on the AUB scale. If IC students get an average of 75 /100 then the IC student who gets a 75 gets a 500/800. Conclusion : a 90 from another school is the same as a 75 from IC.
