I just took the ACT and I don’t feel like I did well on the writing and math sections. I was told that I can delete scores after I’ve seen them, but I’m unsure of what that means for schools like Stanford that require all ACT scores.

Do ACT Subscores Matter for SAT Conversion?

How much do Math and English ACT subscores matter when approximating your SAT score from your ACT score? For example, does getting a 30 with subscores of E: 33 M:32 R: 28 S: 28 look better than getting a 30 with subscores of E: 27 M: 27 R: 28 S: 36? I know that a 30 on the ACT is around a 2000 on th...

Convert 31 on ACT Math to SAT Math?

What does a 31 on the ACT Math section convert to for SAT Math (the regular SAT, not the subject test)? If you do it mathematically, a 31/36 is approximately a 688/800, but I've heard that the scores are actually equalized to something else because of percentiles - closer to a 720-840 for a 31. Is t...

High ACT Math, English but low ACT Reading, Science

What's one thing I can do improve my low ACT Reading and Science scores? When I took the ACT, I got a composite score of 30, which is fine, but my English (36) and Math (34) were both really high, while my Reading (23) and Science (25) brought down my composite score. Is there something the Reading ...

Can Colleges See Your ACT Scores Before You?

I took the September ACT and had my scores sent to the University of Tennessee (which I'd already applied to). When I was checking my application a few weeks after the ACT, though, I noticed that scores were posted for the September test, even though I hadn't gotten the scores yet. Is this an error?...

Better to retake ACT to show consistency?

Does it look bad to only take the ACT one time? I scored a 34 the first time I took the ACT and don't want to risk retaking it, because it's good enough for the colleges I'm applying to. But do colleges like to see some consistency across multiple tests?
