 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.
