FAQs

ACT Format

ACT Exam Format

There are four main ACT sections with an optional essay section at the end. All sections are taken in one sitting.

ACT Exam Format
SAT or ACT?

Both the SAT and ACT are used for undergraduate college admissions in the US. US universities generally have no preference between the SAT and ACT.

 

Here are the general differences between the SAT and ACT:

SAT-ACT Difference

We advise students to pick the exam they can do better on. Generally, students who are good at Math do well on the SAT while students who are weaker at Math but stronger at data interpretation do better on the ACT.

 

Still not sure?

 

The best way to know which exam you should sit for is to take a SAT Diagnostic Test and a ACT Diagnostic Test.

 

You can book your Free SAT and ACT Diagnostic Tests here.

 

After the tests, our consultant will help to compare your scores and recommend which exam you should sit for.

ACT to SAT Score Conversion

You can use the table below to convert your SAT score to a ACT score or vice versa.

SAT to ACT Converter
Should I still sit for SAT Subject Tests if I'm already taking the ACT?

It depends on the school you are applying to. Some US universities do not require SAT Subject Test scores if you have an ACT score while other US universities still require the SAT Subject Scores even with an ACT score.

 

If you are undecided on which university to apply to, we highly recommend sitting for two SAT Subject tests if you plan to apply to the top 25 US universities.

ACT Registration

Who should take the ACT?

You should take the ACT if you plan to apply to any of the following programs:

 

a) US Universities – Undergraduate Programs

 

b) SMU – Undergraduate Programs (if you do not have a A level/IB/NUS High School/Polytechnic diploma)

How can I register for the ACT?

You can register for the ACT on the ACT website: http://act.org/

 

You will need to create an account before you can register for a test.

 

As the Essay section is optional, you should select the option to take the ACT with Essay if you wish to sit for it.

When should I register for the ACT?

The ACT registration deadline is usually a month before the actual exam date.

 

However, you should register for the ACT as soon as you decide to sit for it. This is because spaces in test centres tend to run out before the registration deadline.

ACT Tips

When should I start preparing for the ACT?

While there is no cut-off age to sit for the ACT, most students sit for the ACT in the last two years of high school. For international school students, that would be in Grade 11. For Junior College/IP students, that would be in JC 1/2.

 

You should first decide on your ACT test date, then start preparing for the ACT 2 – 3 months before that date.

 

Generally, you should put in a minimum of 80 hours of preparation before your test. The 80 hours could consist of time spent in class, doing revision, taking practice tests, and completing homework assignments.

Why is my ACT score not improving even after tons of practice?

This is usually because the ACT isn’t like your typical high school exam. You must understand the logic of the ACT before you can score on the exam.

 

To conquer the ACT, you need the right strategy – a specific way of approaching the questions and multiple-choice questions given. And this is what we provide: an original, strategy-driven curriculum written by perfect scorers themselves. We teach you to think in the right way and to use the right methods.

Should I re-take the ACT after a first attempt?

Generally, yes.

 

We find that most students tend to take the ACT at least twice to try to secure a better score. Even if your total ACT score does not improve, it is to your benefit if you make a score improvement on any of the four sections (English/Math/Reading/Science) as many schools practise superscoring (see below on “What is superscoring?”).

What is superscoring?

Superscoring is a scoring policy used by some colleges.

 

With superscoring, the college will take the best score obtained for each section across all your ACT attempts, and average it to tabulate your total ACT score. Here’s an example:

 

ACT Attempt 1 

English – 33/36

Math – 34/36

Reading – 30/36

Science – 28/36

Total – 31/36

 

ACT Attempt 2

English – 35/36

Math – 31/36

Reading – 29/36

Science – 32/36

Total – 32/36

 

Superscored SAT Score

English – 35/36 (from 2nd attempt)

Math – 34/36 (from 1st attempt)

Reading – 30/36 (from 1st attempt)

Science – 32/36 (from 2nd attempt)

Total – 33/36
