ACT and Subject Tests

Brown University says that the ACT scores will suffice in place of SAT+SAT lls. My question is that whether sending ACT and SAT lls will be benificial or not? Am I allowed to do so in the first place?

Same Exact SAT Score?

I took my first SAT Practice test and got a 1130. The next time I did significantly worse and got a 1040. Now, I have taken another practice test and got a 1130 again! Is this normal?

Should I send ACT scores, SAT scores, or both?

Hello, I've taken the new SAT once and scored a 1470. I've also taken the ACT and scored a 33. I took it again just yesterday and am expecting a score of 34-35. I did some research and, percentile-wise, my ACT score seems to be better than my SAT score. I'm wondering whether I should send just my AC...

Actual ACT test drastically different than my Practice tests

I take practice tests at home with the same official time limit, sometimes 5 minutes less in order to compensate for filling out the bubbles. I get about composite 32-34 range with the practice tests. I have only taken the previously administered tests. I've also all the tests from the red ACT book,...

Are scores from state-mandated ACTs acceptable on college applications?

I live in a state where all high school students have to take the ACT. Are my scores from the state-mandated test ok to submit to colleges? Or do I need to take the ACT again independently and submit those scores instead?

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.

2190 SAT and 33 ACT: Which should I take now?

I've taken the SAT twice, and my superscore is a 2190. The issue I have is that my critical reading score is not up to the same level as my other scores (660 vs. 750 on Math and 780 on Writing). I decided to take an ACT practice test as an experiment and got a 33 without any prep. Now I'm in a dilem...

Surprisingly low ACT English score - Should I get hand scoring?

When I got my ACT scores back, I was fine with how I did in all the sections except English. I’m completely shocked by how poorly I did in that section, considering I was getting raw scores of 71-75 on all of my practice tests (from the Red Book and other test prep books). Plus, I felt like I only m...

How much weight does a 36 ACT score carry in college admissions?

I took the ACT for the first time as a junior in December and just received my score of a 36. My GPA is only about a 3.9 unweighted and a 4.2-4.3 weighted, which is not as high as you would expect of someone with a 36 ACT. I scored a 2160 on the SAT, which is disproportionate to my ACT. I've been he...

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...

SAT or ACT Scores Needed for College Admissions for Non-Highschoolers?

Mid-20s on ACT Reading - how to improve?

I keep taking practice tests, but my score never seems to shift from around a 25 on the Reading section. Going straight to the questions didn't work at all for me. Should I just read the whole passage very fast first? Every time I take it I freak out about time...got any tips for me?

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...

Difference between 32/33 and 34 on ACT?

Do colleges consider a 34 as much more highly than a 32/33? Especially since a 33 = ~2190 on the old SAT and 34 = ~2260 SAT. I keep scoring in the 32-34 range on practice tests, but I feel that the pressure of the actual test will make me score a 32 or 33, rather than a 34. Will that make a big diff...
