    My superscore with this test is now a 30. My 4th and final time taking the ACT. The Math and Science were 33 and 30 but my reading and English went down on the April test. I am very happy now with the super score of 30.

    ACT (April) - Composite 30 (English: 33, Math: 31, Reading: 28, Science: 26)
    SAT (January) - 1420 (English: 640, Math: 780), Essay: 24/24

    Which test should I focus on?
    I'm currently a Junior

    Got my score back and received a 34 composite. However, I also received a 28 on my Science section even though I felt pretty good about that section. Is it worth it to have ACT hand grade the science again?

    35! (36 E 35 R 34 S 33 M) The exact subscores as my February ACT when I got a 33 C, except I went up seven points in science... Very excited, as I feared my first (lopsided) ACT would have been my weakness for top schools if I had applied with that score.
  • writergirl0316writergirl0316 Registered User Posts: 254 Junior Member
    @givemethtcheese I'd say probably not. The only time I've heard about hand scoring is for the essays, as the MC scanning machine very rarely makes a mistake like that, especially for one section alone. There was some speculation that the science curve would be strict (Reddit seems to think that -1 was a 34).

    Anyone know when the question and answer info is available? (Showing you which questions you got right and wrong; paid extra for this) We got scores last night. Also curious if the answer key is on the website or mailed. Anyone know?

    Got a 31! 35 E 30 M 31 R 28 S. Better than I expected but retaking.

    Are there others who still don't see their score yet?
  • 84stag84stag Registered User Posts: 99 Junior Member
    We don't see our scores yet. Still showing "registered" on ACT site. This is second test for DS, and last time results came out on first day right away.

    No score here.
    Does that mean it won't be available at all today?
