     ACT Writing

    The ACT test, administered internationally, will be transitioning from pencil-and-paper to fully computer-based testing. The ACT is a requirement for students planning to pursue their undergraduate degree at most colleges and universities in the United States.

    ACT scores are used in the admission process to help U.S. colleges and universities determine how ready applicants are to succeed in first-year coursework at their institution. Many colleges also use ACT scores to help place first-year students in courses appropriate to their level of skills and to award college credit.

    The ACT is accepted for admission purposes by every single four-year college and university in the United States, including all Ivy League institutions.

    The ACT is a curriculum-based achievement exam that measures what students have learned in school. It consists of four required multiple-choice tests in English, mathematics, reading and science and an optional essay writing test. Some U.S. colleges require students to submit writing scores, but many do not.

    The ACT is administered internationally on five annual test dates occurring in September, October, December, April and June. Not all ACT test centers offer the exam on all five test dates. The ACT will be offered this testing cycle at the International Christian School Budapest, Diósd.

    Show what you know about a specific subject and graduate schools will take notice. The GRE Subject Tests can help you stand out from other applicants by emphasizing your knowledge and skill level in a specific area. If you're majoring in one of these subjects, you might want to take a Subject Test in addition to the GRE revised General Test. Subject Tests may not be required by schools, but they're a great way to distinguish yourself and show you're serious about your studies and your future. Each Subject Test is intended for students who have extensive background in one of these eight disciplines:

    Who Takes Them and Why?

    Prospective graduate school applicants take the Subject Tests. GRE scores are used by admissions or fellowship panels to supplement undergraduate records, letters of recommendation and other qualifications for graduate study. The scores provide common measures for comparing the qualifications of applicants and aid in the evaluation of grades and recommendations. Some Subject Tests yield subscores that can indicate the strengths and weaknesses in an individual student's preparation and may also be useful for guidance and placement purposes.

    Who Accepts Them?

    GRE Subject Test scores are accepted by thousands of graduate schools, including individual departments or divisions within these schools. Although the scores may not be a requirement for admission to a particular program, admissions committees are likely to consider the scores if they are submitted. It's best to contact the admissions office or department you're interested in and see exactly what they're looking for.

    About the LSAT

    Register Now The Law School Admission Test (LSAT) is a half-day, standardized test administered four times each year (June, September/October, December, February) at designated testing centers throughout the world. The test is an integral part of the law school admission process in the United States, Canada, and a growing number of other countries. It provides a standard measure of acquired reading and verbal reasoning skills that law schools can use as one of several factors in assessing applicants. In the United States, Canada, the Caribbean, and some other countries, the LSAT is administered on a Saturday, except in June, when it is generally administered on a Monday. For Saturday Sabbath observers, the test is also administered on a weekday following Saturday administrations. Many law schools require that the LSAT be taken by December for admission the following fall. However, taking the test earlier—in June or September—is often advised.

    Test Format

    The test consists of five 35-minute sections of multiple-choice questions. Four of the five sections contribute to the test taker's score. The unscored section, commonly referred to as the variable section, typically is used to pretest new test questions or to preequate new test forms. The placement of this section will vary. A 35-minute writing sample is administered at the end of the test. LSAC does not score the writing sample, but copies of the writing sample are sent to all law schools to which you apply.

    What the Test Measures

    The LSAT is designed to measure skills that are considered essential for success in law school: the reading and comprehension of complex texts with accuracy and insight; the organization and management of information and the ability to draw reasonable inferences from it; the ability to think critically; and the analysis and evaluation of the reasoning and arguments of others. The three multiple-choice question types in the LSAT are:

    • Reading Comprehension Questions—These questions measure the ability to read, with understanding and insight, examples of lengthy and complex materials similar to those commonly encountered in law school. The Reading Comprehension section contains four sets of reading questions, each consisting of a selection of reading material, followed by five to eight questions that test reading and reasoning abilities.
    • Analytical Reasoning Questions—These questions measure the ability to understand a structure of relationships and to draw logical conclusions about that structure. You are asked to reason deductively from a set of statements and rules or principles that describe relationships among persons, things, or events. Analytical Reasoning questions reflect the kinds of complex analyses that a law student performs in the course of legal problem solving.
    • Logical Reasoning Questions—These questions assess the ability to analyze, critically evaluate, and complete arguments as they occur in ordinary language. Each Logical Reasoning question requires the test taker to read and comprehend a short passage, then answer a question about it. The questions are designed to assess a wide range of skills involved in thinking critically, with an emphasis on skills that are central to legal reasoning. These skills include drawing well-supported conclusions, reasoning by analogy, determining how additional evidence affects an argument, applying principles or rules, and identifying argument flaws.

    Repeating the Test

    Test takers frequently wonder whether they can improve their LSAT score by taking the test a second time. If you believe that your test score does not reflect your true ability—for example, if some circumstance such as illness or anxiety prevented you from performing as well as you might have expected—you should consider taking the test again. Data show that scores for repeat test takers often rise slightly. However, if your score is a fairly accurate indicator of your ability, it is unlikely that taking the test again will result in a substantially different score. You should also be aware that there is a chance your score will drop. Law schools must have access to your complete test record, not just your highest score; therefore, LSAC will not honor requests for partial score reports. Unusually large score differences are routinely reviewed by LSAC. This could involve handwriting analysis of the writing sample and other documents, a comparison of thumbprints and/or photographs, or comparison of a test taker's answers to the answers of other test takers seated nearby in the testing room. The same comparisons may be performed in cases of alleged misconduct or irregularity. Law schools may compare your original test score to your scores on subsequent tests. You should notify law schools of any facts relevant to the interpretation of your test results, such as illness or extenuating circumstances. If there is no reason to believe that one score represents a truer estimate of an applicant's ability, schools are advised that the average score is probably the best estimate of ability—especially if the tests were taken over a short period of time. NOTE: LSAC does not automatically inform law schools of a candidate's registration for a retest. It is your responsibility to inform law schools directly about your registration for additional tests.

    Limitations on Test Taking

    You may not take the LSAT more than three times in any two-year period. This policy applies even if you cancel your score or if your score is not otherwise reported. LSAC reserves the right to cancel your registration, rescind your admission ticket, or take any other steps necessary to enforce this policy. For significant extenuating circumstances, exceptions to this policy may be made by LSAC. To request an exception, submit a signed, detailed explanation addressing the circumstances that you feel make you eligible to retake the LSAT and specify the date that you wish to test. E-mail your request as an attachment to or send it by fax to 215.968.1277. You will be notified by e-mail of approval or denial of your request. Be sure to submit your request well in advance of the regular registration deadline so that you can receive timely notification of our decision. Barring unforeseen circumstances, LSAC will respond within seven working days of its receipt. LSAC's decisions are final.
