My composite is a 27. Do people gain admission with that?
I think they do, but it all depends on your area and how competitive it is. I wouldn't sit on that score. If you were my kid, I'd have you take it again, maybe a couple more times.
The Math score is extremely important. Is that bringing your composite up or down?
You can study for it. If you are a senior applying for 2020, you can take the test all the way through the December date trying to get the score up.
The math is a 27 so it's not bringing me up or down. Science is what's killing me
I would recommend an ACT tutor. You don't need a crazy amount of sessions, but success in the science section is less about science knowledge and more about how to approach the questions. I good ACT tutor can give you the proper approach on how to skim the passages/charts and attack the questions. You would most likely see a decent bump in your science score. Once you get the approach, its practice, practice, practice test.
Its not, "Is it good enough". What is more important can I get this score higher. The higher you get it, makes your WCS more attractive. You still have time to squeeze that score.
Push Hard, Press Forward
I never try for just good enough, I'm smarter than what those scores show, I'm just not a good test taker. Thanks for all the input guys.

Every kid I have recommend this to and has used it did much better. Math is all about practice. Get the act book by the ones who give the test and practice by doing all the math problems.
