The ACT is a national college entrance and placement examination composed of five subject area tests: English, Mathematics, Reading, Science and Writing.


The ACT Writing Test is an optional essay test that measures students' writing skills. Some colleges require the Writing Test; others do not.  Students should decide whether or not to take the Writing Test based on the requirements of the colleges  they are applying to.


The ACT is a multiple-choice achievement test, measuring what a student has learned in school. The examination is scored based on the number of correct answers with no penalty for guessing.


The ACT is accepted by all four-year colleges and universities in the United States.
