ACT consists of four multiple choice sections: English, Math, Reading, Science, and Essay. ACT is less vocabulary intensive and is more directly related to what you have learned in your high school. By taking the ACT, you give yourself another choice in which to take college entrance exam. Almost all colleges accept ACT results and there is no preference between SAT I and the ACT. But like all standardized tests, you can obtain better results through meticulous preparations.
You can choose up to four colleges to which ACT will send your scores and you take the test more than once, you can choose which results to send to colleges. ACT also comes with an optional Writing Section, which some colleges require and some don’t; therefore, check the admission requirements for the colleges you are planning to attend.
