    About the ACT

    The ACT is an entrance exam used by most colleges and universities to make admissions decisions. It is a multiple-choice test administered by ACT, Inc.

    The purpose of the ACT test is to measure a high school student's readiness. College admissions officers will review standardized test scores alongside high school GPA, the classes taken in high school, letters of recommendation from teachers or mentors, extracurricular activities, admissions interviews, and personal essays. How important ACT scores are in the college application process varies from school to school.

    The ACT Test Overview

    The ACT contains multiple-choice tests in four areas: English, mathematics, reading and science. ACT's writing test is optional and will not affect your composite score.
