Act score?

On my act test I scored a 35 in English and 31 in reading but my ela score ended up being 30?can somebody explain why/ how the numbers are calculated

@iamanxioushelp I would assume that there is an error. You should contact the test maker as soon as possible before they data wipe their computers and ask them if there is a problem with your score.

ELA would include the use of your your writing score on the essay in the calculation, and thus could end being lower than both English and reading scores.

Can second @drusba Your ELA score also contains your writing score
