Calculating your Superscore

For academic scholarships

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, or superscore, by averaging the highest subject scores. Here's an example:

    ACT 1      ACT 2    ACT 3
English 25 27 24
Reading 26 23 29
Science 30 29 28
Math 31 33 32
Composite  28 28 28



Superscore: 30

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, or super-score, for the student, adding together the highest subject scores that the student has received.
