About the ACT

The ACT is one of the most widely used metrics of college readiness and is one of the most important factors in the admissions decision. Nearly all colleges in the US and many in Canada require either the ACT or the SAT as part of the college application. ACT scores are also a critical factor in earning academic scholarships!

The ACT is composed of 4 mandatory sections and one optional writing test:

  • English
  • Reading
  • Math
  • Science

ACT SCORING

Each of the four required sections (English, Reading, Math, and Science) are scored on a scale of 1-36. These four sub scores are averaged for a total potential composite score of 36. The optional essay (scored by two readers on a scale of 1-12) does not factor into the composite score.

What ACT Score Do You Need to Get Into College?

Composite ACT score ranges vary dramatically based on each college's selectivity. Ivy League applicants often earn scores between 34-36, but many colleges accept students with score ranges between 22-30. No matter where you plan on applying, you will always improve your chances for admission and academic scholarships by preparing for the ACT!
