The ACT (American College Test) is accepted in most universities and colleges in the United States of America for undergraduate programs. ACT assessment measures high school students’ general educational development and their capability to complete college-level work with the multiple choice tests covering four skill areas: English, mathematics, reading, and science.
The ACT test provides colleges with a common criterion that can be used to compare all their applicants. The weightage given to ACT scores varies from school to school. Many other factors also are considered by the schools in their admissions decisions like high school GPA, academic transcripts, letters of recommendation, interviews and personal essays.
The ACT, a paper and pencil based test, is offered six times every year in the USA. In India students can take ACT from 17 cities on preset dates. You can select the closest centre to you during the application process.
