Hey, I've taken some practice tests for the ACT and have my scores broken down into the four sections. Does anyone know if there's a reliable ACT Composite Score Calculator I can use to find out my overall score?

Sure, there is an easy way to calculate your ACT composite score. Your ACT composite score is simply the average of your scores on each of the 4 multiple-choice test sections (English, Math, Reading, and Science).

Here's a step-by-step guide on how you can calculate your composite score:

1. Add all your 4 section scores together.

2. Once you've got the sum, divide the total by 4 (since there are four sections).

3. The result of the division will be a decimal. Round off this decimal to the nearest whole number, since ACT scores are given as whole numbers.

For instance, if your section scores are 25 (English), 28 (Math), 27 (Reading), and 26 (Science). Your total would be 106, and when you divide it by 4, you get 26.5. Rounding to the nearest whole number would result in an ACT composite score of 27.

Remember, your ACT composite score is meant to give you an idea of your overall performance on the test. It's important to make sure that there aren't large discrepancies between your section scores (like scoring a 36 on Reading but a 20 on Math), because that could be a red flag for colleges that you're not well-rounded in your abilities.

Good luck with your practice tests and ACT preparation!
