About The ACT Exam Test & 2019-2020 Test Dates

The ACT is the leading US college admissions test that measures what you learn in high school to determine your academic readiness for college. The ACT contains multiple-choice tests in four areas: English, math, reading and science. ACT’s writing test is optional and will not affect your composite score.

TIP: Take as many practice tests as possible as well as a few official ACT Exams.
