How old are you? About a year and 2 months ago, I was 13, and I took it for some gifted/talented program and scored a 22 overall, 28 in math, and 26 in science. I think I got around 15 in English, so that's what brought my score way down.

Well it's out of 1600 I believe, so doing the math its about equivalent to a 27 after rounding up.

Wow that sounds really complicated :?

The English system is rubbish but the American one sounds solid if I could understand the meaning, I am 15 and in my SAT I got:

English 6
Science 6
Maths 6

So as you can see the are very different, well done guys, the American system obviously works better than the British one, Thats why English people are thick :D

So congrats. :D

im only a sophomore. so, figure out my age.

chrisab508 04-15-2004 08:16 PM

I hear of so many sophomores taking the ACT/SAT's (you being one of them) why? I'm a sophomore and my school doesn't have us take them first time till fall of junior year? I woulda taken em at my old school, but i moved :(

Coda 04-15-2004 09:43 PM

can any of you compare the act with the sat? I got a 1350 and am wondering if I should even bother with the act.

corncob3466 04-16-2004 06:32 AM

i dont know much about the SAT, but from what ive learnred from this thread that sounds like a really good score. i wouldnt bother with the ACT if i were you.

Steve Huff 04-16-2004 05:06 PM

Some colleges require it. So, unless you know where you're going, and know they don't require it, I'd take it.

nyu 04-16-2004 08:45 PM

1350 is ok, depending on where you want to go. If you want to go Ivy, or top tier, it might not get you in. If you want to goto a state school, you may be eligible for a scholarship with it. As for score equivalents, a 26 is about an 1180, a 32 about a 1420-1450.

Take the ACT. you might do better on in than the SAT because they test differently, and a majority of colleges will take the higher of the 2 scores.

I took each once and got a 31 or 32 on the ACT, and it got me into a few ivy's and NYU. 26 is not bad at all though(national average is usually between 19-21)

edge 04-16-2004 08:49 PM

Is it a regional thing? Up in the northeast, it's only the SAT's.

corncob3466 04-16-2004 09:27 PM
