The ACT (American College Testing) is one of the two standardized tests (along with the Standardized Aptitude Test (SAT)) for college admissions in the United States. The exam measures students' preparedness for colleges and universities by testing the critical thinking skills that are essential for success after high school. The test is made up of English, Mathematics, Reading and Science sections, as well as an optional Writing section. A testing session lasts approximately 4 hours for the required topics and five hours, if the student completes the optional Writing section. The registration cost for the ACT costs is $49.50 for the entire exam and $34 without the Writing Section.
The role an applicant's ACT score plays in his or her candidacy to attend a college of university varies between institutions. While is its the preferred standardized test of most colleges in the Midwest and the South, the SAT is more widely accepted on the East and West Coasts. Some colleges require neither, opting to evaluate candidacy solely on the basis of high school coursework, GPA, extracurricular experiences, writing samples and recommendations. Because of variance across high schools resulting from differences in curriculum, grading and rigor, standardized tests like the ACT and SAT provide admissions boards with a comparable element for the applicant pool.
