ACT Exam Pattern

The ACT has five sections:

  • English
  • Reading
  • Math
  • Science
  • Writing (Optional test for a 30 minute writing test which may be required by some colleges)

 

Here are the details of what each section will test you on:

Scoring Pattern for ACT

Students will earn one ACT score (1 to 36) on each test (English, Math, Reading and Science) and a composite ACT score, which will be an average of these four tests. The composite score falls between 1 and 36. 

 

If, for example, a student scored 31 on the English, 30 on the Math, 29 on the Reading and 30 on the Science, his/her composite ACT score would be 30.

 

The ACT includes an optional essay, known as the writing test. If one takes the writing test, he/she will receive a writing test sub-score and a combined English/writing score. 

 

 

How to Prepare for ACT?

The ACT is not an aptitude test but is related to what a student has learned in his/her high school courses in English, Mathematics, Reading and Science. A student should concentrate on practicing his high school curriculum.
