Thousands of Manhattan Review's SAT students have been accepted to the best universities in the United States, and we therefore know what it takes to make the cut. We have learned a great deal about the SAT standards of American universities over our many years as professional test prep educators, and we have seen that admissions requirements have grown more stringent in the past ten years. Middle 50% SAT scores of students who matriculated at UC Berkeley in 2006 were 580-710 Critical Reading, 620-740 Math, and 590-710 Writing. By 2015, Berkeley's middle 50% scores had grown to 610-730 Critical Reading (a 30-point increase in 25th percentile scores and a 20-point increase in 75th percentile scores), 640-770 Math (20 and 30 points higher), and 620-750 Writing (30 and 40). A similar pattern can be seen at Brown University, where middle 50% SAT scores increased from 670-760 Critical Reading, 680-770 Math, and 650-760 Writing in 2006 to respective scores of 680-780, 690-780, and 690-780 in 2015.
