ACT Superscoring is Here!

Superscoring is the process of averaging your four best subject scores from all of your ACT test attempts. 

Have you taken the ACT more than once? This free tool makes it easy to calculate your superscore. 

Here’s how to find your superscore if you want to do it yourself:

Step 1: Gather all of your ACT score reports. 

Step 2: Fill out a table with your test dates and corresponding scores from all your ACT tests so you can easily compare subject scores.

Step 3: Identify your best score in each subject by circling the highest number in each column.  

Step 4: Calculate the average by adding those four scores together, dividing by four, and rounding to the nearest whole number.  

  • Add the four scores together: 22 + 23 + 23 + 22 = 90 
  • Divide the sum of the four scores by 4: 90 ÷ 4 = 22.5  
  • Round to nearest whole number: 23   Your ACT superscore is 23.
Who is eligible for a superscore? 
All students who have taken the ACT more than once from September 2016 to current day.

ACT will calculate and report a superscore for students who have taken the ACT test more than once. Scores from State & District testing will also be used in this calculation.
When will superscores be available?

How do students send their superscore to colleges? 
Create or sign in to your MyACT account and request to send reports from your scores dashboard, and pay by credit card.
Do all colleges superscore?
No, not all colleges superscore, but many do and the number is increasing. To find out if the college of your choice superscores the ACT, we recommend that you check out their test score use policy under admissions requirements on their website.
Note:The writing score is NOT part of a superscore or a composite score.
