    What is the ACT?
    The ACT is a national college admissions examination that consists of subject area tests in:

     English

    Mathematics

    Reading

    Science

    The ACT with writing includes the four subject area tests plus a 40-minute writing test.

    ACT results are accepted by all four-year colleges and universities in the US.

    The ACT includes 215 multiple-choice questions and takes approximately 3 hours and 30 minutes to complete, including a short break (or just over four hours if you are taking the ACT with writing). Actual testing time is 2 hours and 55 minutes (plus 40 minutes if you are taking the ACT with writing).

    Why Take the ACT?

    The ACT is accepted by all 4-year colleges and universities in the United States.

    • The ACT multiple-choice tests are based on what you're learning.

    • The ACT is not an aptitude or an IQ test. The test questions on the ACT are directly related to what you have learned in your high school courses in English, mathematics, reading, and science. Every day you attend class you are preparing for the ACT. The harder you work in school, the more prepared you will be for the test.

    • There are many ways to prepare for the ACT.

    • Taking challenging courses in high school is the best way to prepare, but ACT also offers a number of test preparation options including free online practice tests, testing tips for each subject area tested, and the free student booklet Preparing for the ACT. This booklet includes complete practice tests (with a sample writing prompt and example essays). ACT Online Prep™, the only online test preparation program developed by ACT, is another tool to help you be ready for test day.

    • The ACT helps you plan for your future.

    • In addition to the tests, the ACT also provides you with a unique Interest Inventory and a Student Profile Section. By responding to these sections, which ask about your interests, courses, and educational preferences, you provide a profile of your work in high school and your career choices to colleges.

    • The ACT helps colleges find you.

    • By taking the ACT, you make yourself visible to colleges and scholarship agencies, so it's another way to help you get ready for life after high school.

    • Your ACT score is based only on what you know.

    • The ACT is the only national college admission test based on the number of correct answers—you are not penalized for guessing.

    • You choose which scores you send to colleges.

    • When you register for the ACT, you can choose up to four colleges to which ACT will send your scores as part of the basic fee for your test option. If you take the test more than once, you choose which test date results the colleges will receive. ACT sends scores only for the test date you select.

    Optional Writing Test

    Because not all colleges require a writing test for admission, ACT offers you the choice of whether or not you want to spend the extra time and money taking the writing test. Writing is an important skill for college and work, but schools use different methods to measure your writing skills. Find out what colleges have told us about their policies here.

    What is the SAT?

    The SAT is a globally recognized college admission test that lets you show colleges what you know and how well you can apply that knowledge. It tests your knowledge of reading, writing, and math — subjects that are taught every day in high school classrooms. Most students take the SAT during their junior or senior year of high school, and almost all colleges and universities use the SAT to make admission decisions.

    Taking the SAT is the first step in finding the right college for you — the place where you can further develop your skills and pursue your passions. But SAT scores are just one of many factors that colleges consider when making their admission decisions. High school grades are also very important. In fact, the combination of high school grades and SAT scores is the best predictor of your academic success in college.

    It tests the skills you’re learning in school: reading, writing and math. Your knowledge and skills in these subjects are important for success in college and throughout your life.

    • The critical reading section includes reading passages and sentence completions.

    • The writing section includes a short essay and multiple-choice questions on identifying errors and improving grammar and usage.

    • The mathematics section includes questions on arithmetic operations, algebra, geometry, statistics, and probability. 

    Why Take the SAT?

    The SAT tests the reading, writing, and math skills that you learn in school and that are critical for success in college and beyond.

    It gives both you and colleges a sense of how you’ll be able to apply the thinking, writing, and study skills required for college course work.

    The test is straightforward. There are no tricks designed to trip you up. Students who do well in the classroom are often the same ones who will do well on the SAT.

    The SAT also provides the opportunity for you to connect to scholarship opportunities, place out of certain college courses and learn more about your academic strengths.

    SAT scores are among the factors considered in college admission.
