Bill Clinton

The 42nd President of the United States of America, Bill Clinton got a 1032 on the SAT! That’s a slightly above-average score, and it was good enough to get him into Yale! Of course, he went on to serve as eight years as President of the United States. Still, he didn’t do as well on his SAT as Ke$ha!

Kobe Bryant

Kobe Bryant is reported to have gotten a 1080 on his SAT, a figure that’s absolutely irrelevant to his life as a professional basketball player! In fact, he became a member of the Charlotte Hornets right after he graduated high school and he didn’t even go to college!

Scarlett Johannson

Another person who never went to college, Scarlett Johannson is reported to have gotten a 1080 on her SAT as well, just like Kobe Bryant. That certainly didn’t stop her from becoming a movie star!

George W. Bush

GW Bush

George W. Bush, our nations 43rd president, did above average on his SAT. He is reported to have earned a 1206 and attended Yale. Still, though, his score was not as high as Ke$ha’s.

Natalie Portman


The famous actress was reported to have gotten a score of over 1400 on her SAT. Whatever her official score, it was probably pretty good, since she got into Harvard and attended college there.

Bill Gates


As the founder of Microsoft, Bill Gates has a reputation for being a genius, and his SAT score attests to that reputation. He got a 1590 on his SAT, 10 points away from perfect.

Ben Affleck


According to Ben Affleck’s claims, his SAT score was close to perfect.

Will Smith


Will Smith is rumored to have gotten a perfect SAT score!



Perhaps the gold standard for celebrity SAT scores, Ke$ha received a 1500 on her SAT, putting her well ahead of many U.S. Presidents.
