    When taking the ACT test, USNA requires that you take the ACT Plus Writing exam. The most recent time I took the exam, I earned an 11 out of 12 on the essay portion of the exam, but I didn't do so hot on the english/reading sections. Each time I take the exam, do I HAVE to take the Plus Writing exam, or since I scored well, am I able to just take the test without the essay and still have my scores count?

    USNA superscores your tests — which means that if you take multiple ACTs, only your best scores from each section will be considered.

    For example, if you scored a 20 in English and 24 in Math on one test and 24 in English and 20 in Math on a second test, what the admissions workers at USNA woukd be evaluating is a superscore of 24 in English and 24 in Math.

    So no, you don't have to take the writing section again.

    By Writing section do you mean the Essay portion of ACT?
