ACT score on transcript
D21 has a decent/expected ACT score and would like to test again for a chance to improve. I noticed today that her only ACT test from 2020 was on her unofficial HS transcript, which is fine since it is a good score. If she takes it again and gets a lower score and it is put on the transcript, could that reflect badly on her or would colleges just look at the highest score? Would any colleges accept the ACT as recorded on the official transcript instead of having to pay to have it sent? Thank you for any opinions.😁12 replies
