Calculating the Composite Score
Super-Scoring on the ACT and SAT
The composite score on the ACT is calculated by averaging four individual subject scores(English, Reading, Math, and Science). When a student takes the ACT more than once, JBU will make a new composite score for the student, averaging the highest subject scores. See below for an example:
|ACT 1||ACT 2||ACT 3|
The composite score on the SAT is calculated by adding together two subject scores (Verbal and Math). When a student takes the SAT more than once, JBU will make a new composite score for the student, adding together the highest subject scores that the student has received.
