Know more about ACT exam

Updated: Apr 3, 2023

American College Testing, commonly known as the ACT, is a standardized test used for admissions in colleges at the undergraduate level in the United States. It is equivalent to but different from SAT. Just like the SAT, it covers four academic skills in English, Mathematics, and Reading. Apart from the aforementioned, there is an additional Science section. ACT was started in 1959 as a standardized testing option. It has a score ranging from 1-36 which is calculated by the average of the four parts of the test. It offers mostly online tests but direct writing tests are also available. Nowadays, almost all the universities in and outside the US accept both the SAT and the ACT.

The following table shows the information about each section of the test:

The time allotted for the ACT is 3 hours and 55 minutes (excluding breaks) with an optional 40 minutes writing test. The ACT is accepted in all the US colleges and 255 colleges outside the US including Canada, Australia, Singapore, and many more. Like the SAT, this exam also helps a student to achieve financial aid, like merit-based or scholarship.
