    Hi! I think I made a bad mistake sending my test scores to USNA. I recently took the ACT but I didn't do to good. :unhappy: Which sections does the Naval Academy look at? Is it English or Reading; and is it Math and Science, or is it just Math?

    ACT scores would align with the SAT:

    Math
    Verbal

    and they do look at the Composite Score.

    December's test is the last ACT exam scores that will be accepted for the Class of 2014. January's test is the last for SAT, so you still have time to retake both exams!

    Don't fret. Admissions looks for the highest scores from all tests submitted.

    Which ACT verbal aligns with the verbal for the SAT? That's what I'm confused about. Because if it is the reading section of the ACT I scored a 35 but if its the English section of the ACT I scored a 25...so its quite a big difference and I'm really unsure whether I should retake it.

    I definitely recommend studying and retaking that - seems like the easiest one to pull up. My son got a 27 his first time on the English, a 31 on his second attempt and a 35 on his third try! He did study between them - not a whole lot, but just worked through that section on all the sample tests of the book he had. This increased his composite from a 31 to a 35, which I also think makes a big difference. All his other scores stayed the same or increased slightly each test (just from knowing what to expect and being less worried I think)!

    Retake as many times as you can if you believe that there is room to go up. They will look at best score, so you have nothing to lose.
