Each question answered correctly on the HSPT is worth one point. There is no penalty or deduction for incorrect answers.
Your raw score, or the total number of points you earn, is tallied and then converted to a scaled score ranging from 200 to 800.
The Scholastic Testing Service will also determine your percentile rank according to your scaled score. Percentile rank shows where you stand in relationship to other students and allows the schools to compare candidates more easily. There is no passing or failing score on the HSPT, although each school determines what a desirable score is for its candidates.
