Luke’s Answer

A 20 will absolutely get you accepted into universities. Don't worry about the score as long as you find a landing spot at a college because you can apply yourself and excel in higher education and in your professional life no matter what your grades or test scores were in high school.

Hi! If you're looking at applying at highly rated schools, a 20 may not be seen as competitive but paired with the right experience and background you could still be a good fit.
I personally did not score much higher than a 20 (21) and went on to complete an undergraduate degree and graduate degree. Some individuals are great test takers so universities will evaluate you on more than just one test score!

Getting a high ACT score can increase your chances of getting into selective colleges. In general, a good ACT score is any score in or above the 75th percentile — at least a 24. Students should aim to hit or exceed the middle 50% of ACT scores at their chosen colleges. The national average for ACT scores is 23, getting a 24 will put you above that average. This also, opens up scholarship opportunities at universities to help cover the cost.

Aisha’s Answer

A good ACT score ranks you higher than the majority of test-takers. As such, any composite score above the 50th percentile, or 19-20, can be considered a solid score. That said, a 20 won't cut it at many competitive colleges.
