The ACT measures a student’s abilities in mathematics, English, science, reading and writing and is not an aptitude or IQ test; questions are directly related to what students have learned in high school courses. ACT test scores are accepted by all four-year US colleges and universities, including highly selective institutions. 

Earning between a 34 and a 36 puts a student in the 99th percentile of test takers. According to the ACT 2020 National Profile Report, 1.25% of all test takers that year earned a 34, and 0.96% earned a 35. Congratulations, scholars!
