Score higher on the ACT® with exclusive test-taking tactics


The ACT entrance exam is used by most colleges and universities to make admissions decisions. This multiple-choice test is used to measure a high school student's readiness for college within the fields of English, math, reading and science. In addition, the test aims to provide colleges with one common data point that can be used to compare all student applicants. The importance of ACT scores in the college application process does vary from school to school, but as a rule of thumb, the higher a high school student scores on the ACT, the more options they have for attending and paying for college.
