ACT

Objective

The ACT is an entrance exam used by most colleges and universities to make admissions decisions. It is a multiple-choice, pencil-and-paper test administered by ACT, Inc. The purpose of the ACT test is to measure a high school student’s readiness for college, and provide colleges with one common data point that can be used to compare all applicants.

Breakdown

The test consists of four multiple-choice tests covering the subjects of English, Mathematics, Reading, and Science, and an optional Writing section. Students are given 3 hours and 35 minutes to complete the entire ACT, including the Writing section.


Timeline

The ACT is offered six times each year in September, October, December, February, April, and June. Students of all ages are eligible to take the ACT. Many students take the ACT in their junior year and often retake it in the fall of their senior year.

Strategy

While the ACT is meant to measure what you learn in high school, the test itself can trip up even the best students. You’ll need exceptional focus, excellent time-management skills, and a familiarity with the exam’s structure to really master it. And Entelechy's proven ACT prep programs are designed to give you all of the above. Each week, you’ll take a full-length practice ACT test under realistic testing conditions, along with dedicated classes focusing on each section of the test: English, Reading, and Writing.
