New Year Greetings from Socrato.

The ACT is a standardized test for college admissions in the United States. The ACT test covers four academic skill areas: English, Mathematics, Reading, and Science reasoning. It also offers an optional direct writing test.

Generally, you’ll take the ACT for the first time in the spring of your junior year, and scores typically come back in two to eight weeks. This allows you to retake the test during the fall of your senior year if you’re not satisfied with your score.
