This is a great point and very true.

SC has one of the highest rates of SAT participation in the nation. And, many of the top performing states have very low % of their students taking the SAT.

So, of course, the larger sample size and including students who don't really care about the SAT, vs students who are almost all college bound........the numbers will lie.
