The ACT consists of tests in English, mathematics, reading and science. Each test is scored on a scale of 1 to 36, and a student's composite score is the average of the four test scores. The ACT scores what a person has learned, rather than measuring their natural aptitude.
One-tenth of 1% of test-takers achieve a perfect score, according to the ACT website.
