ACT 2018 Scores:
The ACT test results in a composite score which is calculated on a 1 – 36 point scale. The composite score is evaluated from the scores for mathematics, science, STEM, English, reading, writing and ELA. Scores for the individual categories are evaluated on a scale of 1 – 36 except for the writing score which is evaluated on a 2 – 12 point scale.
The STEM score is the average of the scores in mathematics and science whereas the ELA score is the average of the scores in English, reading and writing. If the candidate has not taken the writing test, then no ELA score is reported.
The ACT score report also contains the student ranking as well as prospective majors for the student based on his or her score.
Well I must tell you that it is vey important for students to give SAT or ACT to take admission in US colleges and universities. Even if the university mentions that it is optional, still you should give it. You can register for ACT or SAT after your high school and can given the exam and send the scores to the colleges where you will be applying for admission. I too have ACT.
Well the domicile depends on you doing your class 12th education from a state or having permanent residency of a state. Sometimes a student is able to take the benefit of both the states and hence if you qualify the domicile requirements then you too can take the benefit of bothe the state quota counseling.
I hope my answer helps.
All the best.
Most four - year colleges require that all applicants , domestic and international alike , take the SAT or ACT. If English isn't your first language , then you will likely also have to take TOEFL to apply to college. Most colleges will equally accept IELTS or PTE too. The TOEFL is most popular option.
But if you score highly enough on the verbal section of the SAT or ACT , then you might not have to take the TOEFL.
Hope it helps :)
