WASHINGTON (AP) - Scores on the SAT college entrance exam are largely stagnant for a third year, although African-American students made slight gains

The College Board says average scores in reading, math, and writing were the same in 2012 and 2013.

Students scored an average 496 in reading, down one point from 2011. Average math scores have remained stuck at 514 for three years. The average writing score, 488, was down one point from 2011.

The top score possible on each section is 800. In 2013, 494 people received a perfect score of 2400.

Men, on average, scored better in reading and math, while women did better in writing

African-American students on average scored 431 in reading, 429 in math and 418 in writing. That's slightly higher than the previous two years.
