Thinking about College?

Your EXPLORE results give you an early clue as to whether you will be ready for college-level work if you keep doing the same things in school.

ACT has also developed College Readiness Benchmark Scores. If you meet these benchmark scores, you are on your way to having the skills you will need by the time you finish high school.

The checkmarks show whether you scored above, at, or below the benchmark scores.

Students who score at or above the College Readiness Benchmark Scores for EXPLORE in English, math, and science will probably do well in these subjects in high school and college if they keep up with their coursework.

Students scoring at or above the reading benchmark are on their way to having the reading skills they will need in all of their high school and college courses.
