ACT is the most popular college entrance test in the United States, with more than 2 million test takers annually in the country. ACT scores are accepted by all universities and colleges in the U.S. as well as many prestigious universities around the world.

ACT is not only an aptitude test but also trusted as an accurate college readiness measurement. With results broken down and analyzed by specific indicators, the ACT score report provides an invaluable career orientation tool for students.

The ACT is the only university admissions test from the United States that measures science and higher-level math skills-an advantage for students studying in these fields. More US high school graduates take the ACT test, than any other university admissions test. ACT scores can be used for many scholarship applications.

  1. 1

    The first section is the 45-minute English test covering usage/mechanics, sentence structure, and rhetorical skills. The 75-question test consists of five passages with various sections underlined on one side of the page and options to correct the underlined portions on the other side of the page. Specifically, questions focus on usage and mechanics – issues such as commas, apostrophes, (misplaced/dangling) modifiers, colons, and fragments and run-ons – as well as on rhetorical skills – style (clarity and brevity), strategy, transitions, and organization (sentences in a paragraph and paragraphs in a passage) – and sentence structure – constructing sentences in a stylistically and grammatically correct manner.

    • 75 multiple choice questions
    • Duration: 45 minutes
    • Grammar, punctuation, sentence structure and rhetorical skills

    The ACT mathematics test is one of four multiple-choice tests you will encounter on ACT test day (along with the optional writing test, if you signed up to take it). This test measures the math skills students have typically gained at school up to the beginning of grade 12.

    The test contains 60 questions, and you will have 60 minutes to complete them. You may use an ACT-approved calculator on the test, but it is not required.

    It covers math skills related to real and complex number systems, algebra, functions, geometry, and statistics and probability, and how well you can synthesize and apply your understanding of these concepts to solve complex problems.

  3. 3

    The ACT reading test is one of four multiple-choice tests (along with the optional reading test) you will take on ACT test day. The reading test measures your ability to read closely, reason logically about text using evidence, and integrate information from multiple sources.

    The reading test contains 40 questions, to be answered over 35 minutes. There are four sections to the test, three of which contain one long prose passage and one that contains two shorter prose passages. The passages represent the levels and kinds of text commonly encountered in first-year college curricula.

    • 40 multiple choice questions
    • Duration: 35 minutes
    • 4 types of passages: literary/prose fiction narrative, social sciences, humanities, and natural sciences, 10 questions each passage.

  4. 4

    The ACT science test is one of four multiple-choice tests (along with the optional writing test) you will take on ACT test day. The science test measures the interpretation, analysis, evaluation, reasoning, and problem-solving skills required in the natural sciences.
    The test contains 40 questions, and you will have 35 minutes to complete them. The content includes biology, chemistry, Earth and space sciences (geology, astronomy, and meteorology), and physics. You do not need to have advanced knowledge of these areas but instead should have background knowledge you have acquired in high school classes.

    • 40 multiple choice questions
    • Duration: 35 minutes
    • Questions include scientifc texts, graphs, tables, research summaries

  5. 5

    Some universities (or academic programs within those universities) require the ACT writing test for admission, while others do not. This is why ACT made the writing test the only optional section of the overall ACT test.

    The writing test contains a single question describing a complex issue and asks you to share your perspective on that issue. Your score will not be affected by the point of view you take on that issue.

    *The candidates are advised to choose this test due to the fact that a large number of Universities in the world request it.
