ACT Score Calculator

The curves of 30 released ACT exams (from The Red Book, Q&A Service, and yearly booklets) have been thoroughly analyzed to bring you the most accurate prediction of your scores. For any given raw score, the entire range of scaled scores across all curves are computed along with the percentage of times each one has shown up in the past.

Short story: The ACT Writing section is no longer graded on a curve.

Long Story: In 2015, the ACT (stupidly) decided to score the writing section from 1 to 36 using a curve. In September 2016, the ACT finally realized it was a mistake and changed the scoring back to 2-12. If you’d like to convert a score from the 1-36 range to the 2-12 range, use the official conversion table. If you’d like to know how the essay is graded, go to the writing section here.

*The ACT was updated in 2015. With the exception of the Writing section, which was completely overhauled, much of the test is the same. The English, Math, and Science sections are the same as they were before. The Reading section now features a double passage, which sounds scary but isn’t any more difficult than the single passages. However, many, including myself, feel that the post-2015 test is a tad more difficult than the old one. To account for this, I’ve added a Restricted Chance prediction that is based only on curves from the updated ACT. So far, there have been only 7 released curves so don’t expect this number to give you a complete picture just yet.
