September ACT Curve Predictions

<p>Goes like 0 -1 -2 -3 -4 -5 -6</p>

<p>English 36 35 34 33 32 31 30</p>

<p>Math 36 35 34 34 33 32 31</p>

<p>Reading 36 35 34 33 33 32 31</p>

<p>Science 36 36 35 34 32 32 31</p>

<p>I think it mightbe more lignant for the science because it was kind of hard.</p>

<p>^ Keep dreaming. The science curve is almost never lenient.</p>

<p>I like how people on CC assume no one here gets anything below a 30. haha.
And yes!! The science is ridiculous.</p>

<p>Or because I'm too lazy to go down to 20 or 15? Well thought out assumption</p>

<p>Nice try though!</p>

<p>I agree, the is never lenient. I took a practice ACT (it was an actual exam) and thought it was pretty hard. I got 6 wrong, and that got me a 27!</p>

<p>I'm hoping for a huge curve on the math & science sections!</p>

<p>If the curve is like that of practice test 3 in the red book, I will not complain.</p>

<p>I thought you divided the correct answer by the total questions in that section and times that by 36.</p>

<p>The curve for the ACT is not like the SAT. If you get 1 wrong, it is automatically a 35. So -1 in science will be a 35, not a 36.<br>

go to page 63 in the file and it will give you the curve that is pretty standard for the ACT. There might be a slight 1 point difference depending on the test version but this should be pretty accurate.</p>

<p>The mcgraw hills act 10 past papers guide says i have to use the method i posted above to get my score. If thats wrong, then my actual score is alot lower then. like a raw score of 53 on math would be 32 of scaled scored using the mcgraw method, but if using the method from the pdf, it is only 30. :(</p>

<p>The PDF i posted above was released by the actual ACT company</p>

<p>^ Wrong at least 2 practice tests in the red book (ACTual ACT tests) heave -1 and -2 be a 36</p>

<p>Science is and will never be that lenient. At all. -1 will always result in at least a 35 in that section.</p>

<p>^no. On the June test -1 was a 36</p>

<p>obviously you never used the red book</p>

<p>Little off topic, but is it easier to get a higher score on the ACT than the SAT?
I took a practice ACT English test with no previous revision/tips and got 71 out of 75. and got around 54/60 in Math.
Ill give ACT another try see if i can improve my scores.</p>

<p>Is there any chance math''s 36 is minus 1?</p>

<p>I'd love that cus i screwed up on a ridiculously easy question lol</p>

<p>There's a chance, but it's slim.</p>

<p>It's definitely likely, however i think the curve will go something like 36 35 35 34 33 32 31 31 (0 -1 -2 -3 -4 -5 -6 -7 -8). I dont think it was so difficult to warrant a -1 36 but it's definitely possible. many people thought it was pretty hard.</p>

<p>@soldier it's harder to get a higher score. The ACT is curved so that to get a perfect/near perfect score, you need to get almost every question right. SAT CR has pretty fair room for error</p>
