The ACT – frequently asked questions
Selecting the best university for your undergraduate studies can be quite challenging, especially if you are not well-acquainted with the American educational system and admissions process. While it may be tempting to prepare for both the ACT and the SAT, you are more likely to score well by focusing on one exam to start.
At A-List Education UK we provide SAT and ACT tutoring in London and are here to help you decide which test is best suited to your needs, goals and learning abilities. Knowing how to prepare about the ACT test is essential and will help you achieve a great score.
What is the ACT test?
The ACT is an internationally recognised test that forms part of the US college application process. This exam covers four subjects, more specifically English, mathematics, reading and science. Writing is optional, though some universities require it for admission. With our London ACT tutoring services, you can rest assured that you are going to be prepared in every aspect of the test. The duration of the test is three and a half hours – or four if the writing section is included.
When is best time to register for the ACT?
The ACT is offered on dates throughout the year and, most students decide to take it in Years 12 and 13. Content-wise, the exam covers material that is often largely already familiar from GCSEs and A levels. Most students feel more relaxed if they have their ACT scores before they start their application in Year 13. More importantly, sitting the exam early provides ample amount of time for a re-sit (if needed).
