ACT

ACT

The ACT tests a student's ability to apply knowledge and concepts in math, science, and English. It includes four multiple-choice subject tests covering English, math, reading, and science. The ACT also includes an optional essay section, which is required by some colleges.

 

The ACT may be submitted in lieu of Subject Tests at most institutions. Please check each college’s website to see its testing requirements.  Students who take the ACT will usually do so for the first time in the winter or spring of junior year. You can learn more about the ACT at their website.
