ACT (American College Testing)  

The ACT is America's most widely accepted college entrance exam. It assesses high school students' general educational development and their ability to complete college-level work.

How many questions are there and how long will the test take?

English: 75 questions - 45 minutes
Mathematics: 60 questions - 60 minutes
Reading: 40 questions - 35 minutes

For students taking the ACT Plus Writing, a brief break is also scheduled before the Writing Test. Students taking the ACT (No Writing) in standard time rooms are normally dismissed at about 12:15 p.m.; students taking the ACT Plus Writing are normally dismissed at about 1:00 p.m. For more information about what to expect on test day, see test day procedures.
