In 2011, the average essay score was a 7.3 with a standard deviation of 1.6 (1,647,123 test takers). In 2012, the average essay score was a 7.2  with a standard deviation of 1.6 (1,664,479 test takers). In 2013, the average essay score was a 7.1 with a standard deviation of 1.6 (1,660,047 test takers). Data was for high school graduates in the given year.
