ACT Scoring

<p>Is it true that University of Michigan will take a combination of your best subscores and combine them for a new compounded score? Is this also true for the new writing section?</p>

<p>Yeah, they take your composite (combined) scores. For the writing, I'm not sure. I do know that it isn't required for people applying this year, but it will be required for next year.</p>

<p>Actually, I do not think Michigan will take your - if you took the ACT 3 times and had 3 very different scores...I do not think they will cull out the best scores and remake your composite. If they are doing this it is something new. Can someone show me where they do this? I would hate for someone to be misinformed.</p>

<p>I do know that Washington U in St. Louis does do this particular thing. It doesn't seem quite right though, does it?</p>

<p>Yes Michigan does take your best combined ACT score. It's somewhere on the admission's website.</p>

<p>I found this on the FAQ section of the admissions website:
How many times can I take the SAT I or ACT test and submit the test results? </p>

There is no limit to the number of times that you may take the SAT I and/or ACT test. The University of Michigan will use the highest combined test score from any one sitting of either test in our evaluation of your credentials. </p>

<p>That means that they do not look at your individual subscores and add them up to get the highest possible ACT composite score.</p>

<p>P.S. This is the 100th post on the UMich page of cc! Keep it up guys. Hopefully we'll all be Wolverines soon!</p>

<p>OK, that is what I thought. They will take your best score even if you took the ACT 10 times, but they will not take the scores from your 3 best but different ACT's and remake your composite.</p>

<p>Carry on....</p>

<p>do you guys know which top universities take your best subscore on the ACT?</p>

<p>The only one I know of for sure is Washington University in St. Louis.</p>
