Keep in mind, an ACT score alone won't get you admitted. It's equally important to have the GPA that the college is expecting for incoming students.

Is a 25 a good ACT score?

Yes, a score of 25 is quite good. It places you in the top 78th percentile nationally out of the 2 million test takers of the ACT entrance exam. The score indicates you've done a well above above average job answering the questions on the English, Math, Reading and Science sections of the test. If a 25 isn't strong enough to get into your dream school, consider taking a test prep course to see if you can raise your score.

What is the SAT equivalent to a 25 ACT score?

For comparison purposes, a 25 on the ACT converts to a 1210 on the SAT based on the College Board / ACT concordance. Not all colleges report both SAT and ACT score admission data so you should check our comparable listings for both standardized tests to find academically similar schools.
