If you are trying to calculate your own "superscore" composite score (using the best subscores from two or more testing dates), you needn't bother. Nearly all top schools just take the highest composite ACT score from a single test date, even if they do superscore your SAT test results. Reply

MIT (for example) takes the top score from each section. If you earned a 33 on English one year and the next you earned 35, then the 35 is your top score. If you earned a 36 on Math on year and the next was a 34 then they take the 36. So English would be 35 and Math is 36. I'm guessing this depends on the type of college you are wanting to enroll in. Usually this information is posted on the colleges web site. Reply
