A couple questions, first. Do you remember if you even took the ACT? Or what a good ACT score is?

Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: 15 minutes

Here's How:

  1. Remember whether you took the ACT or SAT in high school. Here's a hint: Your ACT score will be a two digit number from 0 – 36. Your SAT score will be a three or four digit score between 600 – 2400. However, since the SAT has changed quite a bit in the last twenty years, the score you may have received in the 70's would be scaled a bit differently now.
