On the June ACT, I got a composite score of 31. I took it before and got a 29. Science is my big downfall--a 24 this time, 23 last time. This time my Reading went up to a 35, from a 28 maybe? 35 in English, same as last time. 28 in Math, also same as last time. I would love to get like a 33 or 34 but I would have to go up a lot in Science (I think the other 3 sections are at their max.) I have to say I don't really like science (I have taken them all--bio, chem, physics) and I especially hate the ACT science section.
My parents say there is no point in taking it again, that even if I did raise my composite score a few points it wouldn't really help me with college admissions. I will be a senior next year, looking to go somewhere like Carleton or Macalester or some similar LAC.
