Super Scoring


Super scoring is the practice of colleges to use a student's highest individual sub scores, regardless of test date to come up with a "super score."  This happens somewhat frequently by colleges with the SAT where the colleges will take the highest math score and the highest English score from a different date to come up with a new overall Super Score.  For admissions, it is less common to find colleges that super score for the ACT.  For the ACT, it would mean creating a new Composite score calculated from the highest sub-scores in English, Math, Reading and Science.  Determining if a college will super-score admissions test results would be a question for the individual college as each school is responsible for establishing their own protocol.
