It was a 24. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
English=30
Math=20
Science=22
Reading=23
Math has always been my weakest subject. It essentially was what brought my score down.

Thats awesome, not to brag (too much) but I got a 25 on my ACT, twice.

Its funny because math is also my weak spot, so the second time i studied only the math part, and it went up two point, while my reading/writing score went down two points.

But my sister (the "successful child") only got a 22. Makes me feel all awesome.


The nice thing is, alot of schools will more or less accept you if you have a 20+ ACT score. Thats how my sister got into Hastings.

Somehow I got a 27 and 28. And as I walked out of the room after my second time taking it, the kid who sat next to me told me his first test was a 35, and he was going for 36 on the one he just took. Boy, if I had known that 4 hours before.... lol.

What is this "ACT" of which you speak?

In the U.S.A. the ACT is one of two tests that you can take in order to qualify for college. It is divided into four.....actually five categories, I forgot writing (at least where I live). They are Reading, Math, English, and Science, as well as Writing a short essay on a subject.

Depending on where your from, most colleges will either look at your ACT or your SAT. In some places, both are necessary for most schools. I know that in the midwest, most schools look at your ACT, where as on the west coast, the SAT is more popular.

Ah okie. So are US colleges the equivalent of Aussie universities? I've always been confused on that... our colleges are easy to get into, and are still considered secondary education (years 11 and 12), and at the end we do a test which combines with our best 3.6 units to give us a UAI (at least in Canberra, I believe it differs across the country), out of 100, which we use to get into a university (tertiary education).
Someone clear this up for me...

weird, i remember when i applied five years ago only east coast liked SAT and west coast preferred both ACT and SAT.

Im also in eigth grade and I think its one of those tests they make to see if you are smart or not but I take SATs and most of friends were proved to be really dumb and also i hate those tests when you get to ninth grade and on they make them count to see if your going to college or not they are really annoying and sometimes you have to come in on a Saturday morning to do those damn tests or at least in my school. My test also said im an average student i got a 79 % http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif but only because the time ran out and I couldnt finish it properly so I was guessing answers but that happened a long time ago.
