I got a 34 (36R, 35M,35W, 29S). I probably just got really lucky as I didn’t study too much and wasn’t expecting a super high score. I’m pretty sure I was thinking in the 30-32 range. I will definitely say that reading books (seems obvious, right?) helped me the most as it allowed me to gain interest in the topics I was learning about and have some prior knowledge before starting. Another thing that I did which helped me was not bringing a watch. It seems counterintuitive but doing so forced me to go faster as I honestly didn’t know how much time I had left. I finished all the sections (except for science....) with 10-15 minutes remaining. However, at the end of the day, standardized test scores aren’t everything (especially with COVID)!

I know you're trying to gauge how different people did but you also could look at ACT's published stats here: https://www.act.org/content/dam/act/unsecured/documents/2020/2020-National-ACT-Profile-Report.pdf

Check out page 8. You'll see a ton of details on average scores in each section. Page 15 then shows the distribution of those scores (for example, 5,579 students scored a 36 composite; only 16,061 scored a 35 composite score).
