The ACT exam is a standardized test used for college admissions in the United States. It is typically taken by high school students in their junior or senior year. The test measures students’ knowledge and skills in four subject areas: English, mathematics, reading, and science reasoning.

The ACT exam consists of multiple-choice questions and takes approximately three hours to complete. There is also an optional essay section, which adds an additional 40 minutes to the test.

The ACT is administered several times throughout the year at various testing centers across the United States and other countries. Students can register for the exam online and are required to pay a fee.

The scores on the ACT are used by colleges and universities to help determine admission decisions, and some institutions also use the scores for scholarship awards. It is important for students to prepare for the exam by reviewing content in the subject areas tested and practicing taking timed tests.


The ACT exam consists of four multiple-choice sections: English, mathematics, reading, and science reasoning. Each section is timed and the total test time is approximately three hours. The sections are scored on a scale of 1-36, and the scores from each section are averaged together to give a composite score.

In addition to the four multiple-choice sections, there is an optional writing section, which is scored separately on a scale of 2-12. The writing section consists of a single essay prompt, and students are given 40 minutes to write their response.

Here is a breakdown of the structure of the ACT exam:

  1. English (45 minutes, 75 questions)

    • Tests grammar, punctuation, and usage
    • Tests sentence structure and rhetorical skills
  2. Mathematics (60 minutes, 60 questions)

    • Tests math skills learned through grade 12, including algebra, geometry, and trigonometry
  3. Reading (35 minutes, 40 questions)

    • Tests reading comprehension and critical thinking skills
    • Includes four passages, each followed by a set of questions
  4. Science Reasoning (35 minutes, 40 questions)

    • Tests interpretation, analysis, evaluation, and problem-solving skills in the natural sciences
    • Includes passages and data representations from biology, chemistry, physics, and Earth/space sciences

Optional Writing Section (40 minutes, 1 essay prompt)

  • Tests writing skills, including organization, clarity, and analysis
  • Includes a single essay prompt that presents a complex issue and requires students to develop an argument on the issue.


The digital SAT is composed of two sections: Reading and Writing and Math. Students have 64 minutes to complete the Reading and Writing section and 70 minutes to complete the Math section for a total of 2 hours and 14 minutes.
Each section is divided into 2 equal length modules, and there is a 10-minute break between the Reading and Writing section and the Math section. The first module of each section contains a broad mix of easy, medium, and hard questions. Based on how students perform on the first module, the second module of questions will either be more difficult or less difficult.

Compared to the ACT®, the SAT provides 68% more time per question:

  • Most of the questions are multiple choice, though some of the math questions ask you to enter the answer rather than select it.
  • On all questions, there’s no penalty for guessing: if you’re not sure of the answer, it’s better to guess than leave the response blank.

We offer the most convenient version of the test that is a paper-based one.
