About the ACT
Many students are choosing the ACT as their college entrance exam. The ACT measures aptitude in English, math, reading, and science; plus, it can be taken with or without a writing test component. The ACT is offered each school year in September, October, December, February, April, and June. Most students take it in the spring of their junior year. Some repeat the exam in the fall of their senior year. ACT results are accepted by all four-year colleges and universities in the U.S.

How is the ACT scored?
Each section of the ACT (English, Math, reading and science, is scored on a scale from 1 to 36. The scores for all four sections are averaged to give the students an overall composite ACT score between 1 and 36.
The optional writing portion of the test receives four separate domain scores (Ideas and Analysis, Development and Support, Organization, and Language Use and Conventions). Each of the four domains is scored on a scale of 2-12.
Beginning September 2016, students who elect to take the writing portion of the test will also receive an overall Writing Score on a 2-12 range - the average of the four domain scores.
The scores are based on the number of correct answers. There are no penalties for incorrect answers. Each college and university sets its own ACT score requirements for admission into that school. Check with the schools you are interested in applying to in order to determine the ACT score you need to achieve. You can decide which ACT scores are sent to prospective schools.
