ACT Questions & Answers
When should I take the ACTs?
People of all ages and grade levels are eligible to take the ACT.  However, most students are best prepared to take the ACT in the spring (February or April) of their junior year in high school.  This timeframe gives you a chance to check on your own college and career readiness; it also allows you time to make any changes needed to become better prepared.
 
How many times can I take the ACTs?
The limit is 12 tests, but most students will take the test once or twice.  ACT research shows students who take the test more than once improve their score about 55% of the time, earn the same score about 22% of the time, and get a lower score about 23% of the time.  Students are recommended not to test more the three times.
 
Will colleges look at it negatively if I take the ACT a bunch of times?
Colleges establish their own procedures for the ways they use score information provided by ACT.  If you have specific questions, it's best to speak with the particular college or university.
 
Tips For Taking ACT Tests
  • Check your calculator - Be sure your calculator is permitted for use during the Math section; visit actstudent.org to find out if your calculator is allowed
  • Make sure you have your ticket - If you dont' have your ticket yet, sign in to your ACT Web account and print your ticket now.  If you wait until test day, you could experience delays if there is heavy server traffic or if you have trouble signing in
  • Make sure you have a valid photo ID - Check out the ID requirements on the Test Day Checklist at actstudent.org and make sure you bring your photo ID on test day
  • Make sure to bring your printed ticket and valid photo ID to the test center - Without borth your printed ticket and a valid photo ID, you won't be admitted to test
  • Don't bring your cell phone into the test center - If your cell phone goes off during the test or if you are caught using it at any time during testing - even during breaks - you will be dismissed and your test will not be scored
  • Make sure your test counts (don't cheat) - Your answer document will not be scored if you give or receive assistance during the test.  And if you suspect someone of cheating on the ACT, let us know.  We'll take it from there.________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
