Hey everyone; I'm kind of a newbie when it comes to the ACTs and I was thinking about taking them. One thing I was curious about was how they're scored. I know they're out of 36, but does anyone know how they determine your individual subscores out of their respective raw scores into something that's out of 36? (i.e., how they get from something like 25 out of 60 on math to a 9 out of 36 or something like that).

Anyone help would be appreciated, thanks!

Get an ACT bookler from your school. If they dont have it or you cant find one, go to

I ordered a bunch of free ones there (for disables students and such.. just as a little trophy from the ACT, which I took 5 times). Anyway, it is free to order those and they mail them pretty quickly.

Hey, I took the ACT for the first time and got a 29 overall. Is that good or bad?
