2017 April ACT international testing score discussion.

Hi guys! I know its a tad late to start a discussion thread for the April 8 exam but I wanted to know if any of the internationals got their test scores? My status is still registered.

I had the 71F form (reused from September 2013). A friend of mine got 75S (the same paper he gave in December 2016) hahah.

Curve predictions anybody?

    I too am still registered, tested at an international location.
  • vakilmohitvakilmohit Registered User Posts: 79 Junior Member
    What was your ACT form number?
  • nisydpo123nisydpo123 Registered User Posts: 26 New Member
    i also got 71F, but how do you know the test was reused? And what do you mean ur friend got 75s ? (i'm assuming u guys took the test in the same location)
  • vakilmohitvakilmohit Registered User Posts: 79 Junior Member
    He was availing Special Accomadations.. they give the test a week after us. I think they always get a different test.

    About 71F haha they always reuse tests. Just look up your form number on college confidential and you'll get a thread with people discussing that paper.

    I'll save you some time :

    i see. how did u find the test? I thought the math was the easiest, then english, science, reading. I just hope the curve to be generous..i really need a solid 32.
  • vakilmohitvakilmohit Registered User Posts: 79 Junior Member
    Yeah I think Math was the easiest. But it was a bit trickier than the red book (the act prep guide) .. so I am expecting like a 59-60 -> 36
    57-58 -> 35

    English was really really easy. Easier than the red book. I think :
    75 -> 36
    74 -> 35
    73 -> 33
    72-> 32
    70-71 -> 31

    Reading was decent.
    40 -> 36
    39 -> 35
    37-38 -> 34

    Science was pretty easy.
    40 -> 36
    39 -> 34
    38 -> 33
    36-37 -> 31

    I hope

    What are your curve predictions ?
  • nisydpo123nisydpo123 Registered User Posts: 26 New Member

    I guess you are pretty accurate since ur prediction curves are very similar to those in the red book. But since you said that this test was re-used in 2013, I guess it would be safe to use the same curves that ACT used for the Sept. 2013 test. So considering that...maybe the curve isn't going to be as generous as the recent curves.
    BTW, where did u take the test?
  • vakilmohitvakilmohit Registered User Posts: 79 Junior Member
    I know. But I can't find the September 2013 test online .. or the grading curve. If you can find it tell me haha.

    I gave the test in Mumbai, India
  • nisydpo123nisydpo123 Registered User Posts: 26 New Member
    I just looked up the april 2013 test (form 71G) from ****, and it looks like the curve is pretty generous..

    E:
    36: 0
    35: 1-2
    34: 3
    33: 4-5

    M:
    36: 0-1
    35: 2
    34: 3-4
    33: 5

    R:
    36: 0
    35: --
    34: 1
    33: 2
    32: 3-4

    S:
    36: 0-1
    35: 2
    34: 3
    33: 4
    32: 5

    I just hope the curve for the reading section to be much more generous....
  • vakilmohitvakilmohit Registered User Posts: 79 Junior Member
    That's a good curve. Expect the science curve to be more aggresive tho. Same for English.
  • nisydpo123nisydpo123 Registered User Posts: 26 New Member
    when do you suppose the test scores will be out for international students?
  • vakilmohitvakilmohit Registered User Posts: 79 Junior Member
    Friday perhaps. Could take longer (maybe May 3rd or 5th)
  • k_03k_03 Registered User Posts: 130 Junior Member
    People on reddit who have their scores have them according to the curve (for Science):
    -1 = 34
    -2 = 33
    -3 = 31
  • nisydpo123nisydpo123 Registered User Posts: 26 New Member
    but those people took the U.S test... i don't think those curves are worth comparing to.
