How is the ACT composite superscore calculated

mumof2mumof2 Registered User Posts: 310 Member
Hi, the good news is that some of the schools in which I am interested say that they "superscore" ACTs. The bad news (not so bad) is that my superscore calcualtes as 30.5. For my composite score, will they round up to 31 or down to 30? Thanks!

    On the actual ACT if you averaged a 30.5 it would be a 31, so I'm guessing colleges would round up!

    ACT rounds up .5 to next number but colleges can do anything they want and thus your Q can only be answered by particular college. It may go by the 30.5, it may round up to 31. it may, in fact, give more emphasis to two subscores, math and English, than composite.
