The ACT is a standardized achievement examination for college admissions in the United States. Some students who perform poorly on the SAT find that they perform better on the ACT and vice versa. The test takes approximately 3 hours.
The ACT test consists of four sections: Math, Science, English and Reading. There is an optional writing section. All 4 subject scores will be used to calculate scores for the eligibility centre. It is recommended that the test is written at the beginning of the Junior (Gr. 11) year.
