How is the ACT scored?2017-10-07T11:27:25-04:00

How is the ACT scored?

Here’s how ACT scoring works. You’re given a point for every question you get right (there’s no penalty or point deduction for wrong answers). The total number of questions you get right on each test (English, Math, Reading, and Science) equals your raw score. Your raw score for each test is then converted into a scale score (1–36).

Your composite score, or overall ACT score, is the average of your scores on each test. Add up your English, Math, Reading, and Science scores and divide by 4. (Round to the nearest whole number).

A score of over 29 out of 36 is considered a good score.
