High Composite Score Low Essay Score on the ACT?

I recently took the ACT, and I got a 34 composite score but only a 6 on the essay. Should I be worried about my low essay score? Would it be smart to retake the test?

ACT score decreased by 5 points on second attempt?

I've taken the ACT twice, and I'm worried because my composite score decreased by 5 points on my second attempt. Could this have a negative impact on my application? Or will colleges largely ignore the second score and just look at the first one?

Is it bad to take the ACT more than 3 times?

I've taken the ACT 3 times, and I've gotten the same composite score (28) every. single. time. It only goes up to a 29 even with superscoring, and I really would like to score above a 30. Will I look bad to colleges if I take the test a fourth time?

30 ACT score: should I retake it for California state universities?

I have a 30 on the ACT, and I'm debating whether or not I should retake. Money is tight, so I don't want to register for the test if it's unnecessary. The schools I'm worried about are UC Irvine/UC Davis, UCLA, and Berkeley. I do have a high GPA (3.9 unweighted) and have taken 8 AP classes, so I thi...

33 ACT score - should I retake for top colleges?

I've consistently gotten 35-36s on practice tests, but there were some distractions at my test center, and I missed a few questions on the Science section. As a result, I ended up with a 33 composite score. I know a 33 isn't a bad score, but I don't want to disadvantage myself unnecessarily if I can...

Should I retake the ACT or try the SAT instead?

I got a 30 on the ACT, but I didn't take it with Writing. I wasn't expecting to get this high of a score the first time around, so I figured it was fine to save Writing for a retake. At this point, I have to either take the ACT again with Writing or take the SAT. I'm thinking maybe I should go with...

ACT without Writing useless if schools want Writing section?

I am a sophomore and I took the ACT and got a 35. However I took the ACT without writing and I saw that most colleges require the ACT Plus Writing.

Should I skip straight to the questions on ACT Science?

I've tried reading the passage first, and I've tried skipping straight to the questions. I got the same score with both strategies (26, but I'm hoping for a 29+). Which strategy gives me the best chance of improving my score next time?

Suspicious ACT score improvement? How much is too much?

I didn't know anything about the ACT when I first took it, so I scored much lower than I was hoping (22). I've been studying a lot in the interim, and I'm predicting a composite score of around 30 based on practice tests. My question is whether the ACT will think I cheated if my score changes this m...
