Is a 17 on the ACT a good score?

A score of 17 is pretty low. It places you in the bottom 31st percentile nationally out of the 2 million students taking the ACT entrance exam this year. The score indicates you've done a well below average job answering the questions on the English, Math, Reading and Science sections of the test.
