Anyone know what score you'd receive for just turning in a blank ACT/SAT ? Is there some lowest benchmark for not answering one question and just turning it in?

SAT: 400 - 200 on each section.

You actually score like a 500-550 by handing it in blank. You actually have to get a NEGATIVE score to bring it down to 400.

Bs songster. You get around 200 pts for each section just for turning it in.

The scaled score for 0 and negatives is the same. You still get 200.

To actually score a 200/200 on the SAT you need to answer about 6 questions wrong on each section while not answering any of the others. That is because you need some wrong answers and thus some deductions to get that low; answering one question and getting it wrong will put you above 200. If you answer none of the test questions, the College Board automatically cancels your test and gives it no score.

The ACT also will not score a blank test and it does not take off for wrong answers, but 1 is the lowest possible composite and a few actually managed that in 2003.

I actually know someone who got a 220v 280m, I saw some negatives on her score report.
