I'm a junior in high school, and I took the test in September for the first time. I was aiming for a high score on the ACT, and was absolutely thrilled to see straight 36s on English, reading, and math. It was definitely not expected. However, my science score was a 27. Science is my favorite subject, but I had not known what to expect for science and ended up messing a lot of it up. I've also read on here that this month's test had a very difficult science section, which makes me feel a little better about goofing it up.
My composite score is a 34, but will colleges find a 36-36-36-27 strange? I'm still at the beginning of my junior year, so I would have time to retake it. Thanks for any replies, I'm looking forward to hearing some advice.
