Advantage Testing LSAT Q&A

What is the average ACT score?

For students who graduated in 2018, the average composite ACT score was 20.8 on a scale from 1 to 36. The average score on the English Test was 20.2, the average score on the Mathematics Test was 20.5, the average score on the Reading Test was 21.3, and the average score on the Science Test was 20.7.

Keep in mind that the average scores of students admitted to colleges and universities with highly selective admissions are generally much higher than these national average scores (e.g., the average ACT score of students admitted to Yale is 34). When you are trying to determine your goal, look up the average and 75th percentile scores of students at the schools to which you plan to apply.
