How many ACT takers score 36 on the math? I know it is <1% according to their site and I know that in 2004 6914 people of 653,158 received perfect subscores on the hardest/highest level math subsection, but how many of that 6914 also scored max points on all the other subsections? If it is possible, how many females/how many males? How does the frequency of a 36 math ACT compare to the frequency of an SAT1 800 in math?

617Member12,128Senior MemberHEREwe are talking about perfect scores on each of the 4 areas. I'm asking specifically about math, where my D did score a 36.12,128Senior Member1,576Senior Member15New Member408Member1,564Senior Memberthe rest of my act scores were ****ty tho

12,128Senior Member41Junior Member1,066Senior MemberThat may be generally true, however, there is little difference in the number of test takers between the ACT and SAT. 1.2M for the ACT and 1.3M for the SAT. I expect that more students will be taking both tests going forward. Further, Texas is a high polulation state so I would expect more a pretty large number of ACT test takers going forward.

185Junior Member13New MemberMy d. missed one in math (at the pre-algebra/elementary alg. level) and got a 35 in math, so it appears you must get all right to get a 36.

I do know that only 30 students out of 253,000 takers got at 36 composite in the Feb. 05 testing, so that is a smaller percentage than the perfect SAT takers, plus it doesn't include the writing on the composite score. That in itself, makes me think that a 36 Math ACT is more rare than a 800 Math SAT.

Great job - You Go Girl!
