8 Reasons to Choose the ACT Test

8 Reasons to Choose the ACT Test

  1. You can get your test back with the answer key. With three tests out of the year, you can order your Test Information Release (TIR) - your personal question and answer key to help you strategize for success.
  2. Scholarships. Taking the ACT test can increase your chances of earning new or better scholarships.
  3. You've already been studying for the ACT for years.The test is designed so by the end of your junior year, you've likely covered all the material that you will see on the test.
  4. More opportunity to stand out. Many colleges and universities still require or will consider college entrance scores as part of a holistic admissions process — stand out from the crowd with an ACT score!
  5. English Learner Support. The ACT test is the only college entrance exam that provides support to English learners on national test dates.
  6. You get a choice in how you test. ACT lets you test with paper and pencil OR online so you can choose a testing format that aligns with your comfort zone and showcases your true potential.
  7. STEM readiness. The ACT test is the only admissions test to measure science skills, including a STEM score to let you know if you are ready for a STEM major. 
  8. College and career planning. The ACT includes an education and career planning section to help you plan for life after high school.
