ACT Exam Preparation

What is the ACT

A standardized test, The ACT® measures English, Mathematics, Science and Reading. The ACT Plus Writing includes the four subject area test plus a 40 minute Writing Test.

Universities in the US, while inviting the applications from prospective students, ask for SAT® I or the ACT scores.

The examination is entirely a paper-based Test. The test is scored on a maximum of 36. The ACT® scores alone cannot guarantee admissions in to a school – the test is only one of the major factors taken in to consideration in the long process of an applicant getting admitted in to a graduate school that he/she desires.

The ACT (No Writing) consists of four multiple-choice tests: English, Mathematics, Reading, and Science. The ACT Plus Writing includes the four multiple-choice tests and a Writing Test.

What is the scoring of ACT®?

The student's correct answers are counted on each test. They neither lose nor gain points for each omitted or incorrect answers. Then, for each test, the student ' s numbers of correct answers are converted into a score that ranges from 1 to 36. Their COMPOSITE score is the average of your four test scores, rounded to the nearest whole number. If you left any test completely blank, that score is reported as a dash and no Composite score is computed.

You must take both the English and Writing Tests in the same session to receive Writing scores. The Combined English/Writing score is created by using a formula that weights the English Test score two –thirds and the Writing Test score one –third. The Combined English/Writing score is then reported on a 1 –36 scale.

THE ACT® FAQ's

Do admissions to the universities depend only on the ACT® scores?

It is one of the various criteria that the admission council looks at. However, a good ACT® score does improve your chances of getting admission and financial aid.

What is the cost / registration fee for the ACT® test?

The registration for taking ACT® is $38 and ACT® plus Writing is $ 54.50. The $16.50 Writing Test fee is refundable, on request, if you are absent on test day or switch to the ACT (No writing) before the test begins

How do I register for the ACT®?

You can register online. The detailed information about registering for the ACT® can be found at www.act.org

What is the difference between the ACT® and SAT®?

The ACT® is an achievement test, measuring what a student has learned in school.The SAT® is more of an aptitude test,testing reasoning and verbal abilities. The ACT® has up to 5 components: English, Mathematics, Reading, Science, and an optional Writing Test.The SAT® has only 3 components: Critical Reading, Mathematics,and a required Writing Test. The SAT® penalizes you for wrong answers, so guessing is discouraged. The ACT® is scored based on the number of correct answers with no penalty for guessing.

What if I miss the deadline for registering for the ACT®?

If you miss the late deadline to register for a test date, or to request a test date or test center change, you may choose to sign in to your ACT® account to request and pay for standby testing. Standby testing costs $47.00 plus the fee for your test option ($85.00 total for the ACT® No Writing or $101.50 total for the ACT® Plus Writing plus $37.00 international surcharge.

How many times in a year is ACT® exam held?

The ACT ® is held 5 times a year. They are held in September, October, December, April and June

How soon do you get your score?

Most scores are available for online viewing within 2 weeks after each test date. Score reports are normally released within 3 to 8 weeks after each test date. If you took the Writing Test, your score reports will be released only after all your scores are available, including Writing, within 5 to 8 weeks after the test date.

If I take the ACT® more than once, which score will be considered by the universities?

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.

How do I pass on my scores to colleges I want to apply?

The universities only accept official scores sent directly by act.org. Scores to four colleges you choose when you register for the ACT® will be sent free of cost. Subsequently, for each score report sent to a college, you would have to pay $12.00

Can I send scores from two different dates to a college as one score report?

No. The ACT Institutional services do not combine scores from different test dates in their reports. ACT maintains a separate record for each test date, and it is ACT's policy to report scores only for entire test dates. In requesting a score report from ACT, you may not select test scores from different test dates to construct a new record; you must designate an entire test date record as it stands.

Can I change my test date or test center on test day?

No. To be considered for admission to the test center, you must bring a printed copy of your ticket. The test center and correct test date must be listed on your ticket. If you bring a ticket for another test date or a different test center, you will not be admitted. You must also bring acceptable photo identification

The only change you can make on the day of the test is your test option–ACT No Writing or ACT Plus Writing. Tell the test supervisor at your test center that you want to make this change before you are admitted to test. If there are materials, space, and staff available for your new preferred test option after students registered for that option have been admitted, you will be allowed to make the change. If you change to the ACT Plus Writing, ACT will bill you.

How many times can I take ACT®?

You may take the ACT no more than 12 times total. This restriction applies even if your scores from a test date are cancelled by you or by ACT. ACT may cancel your registration, rescind your admission ticket, or take any other steps necessary to enforce this policy. If you violate this restriction, your scores will not be reported or will be cancelled and your fees will not be refunded.
