They’re back! Who is back you ask. It’s not the who but it’s what…the return of SAT and ACT testing. Although most colleges are going “test optional” for admissions, College Board and ACT wanted everyone to know that their admission tests will be returning soon.
Registration is now open for all students and administration will begin in August through the end of the calendar year. This includes a new administration on September 26. They will also add a test date in January 2021 if there is demand for it.
ACT has some new and exciting options waiting for its test takers.
- ACT’s new remote testing option will offer students even more flexibility when taking the ACT test. Students who select remote testing will be able to take the test online at home, or at other safe and convenient locations.
- Section Retesting: Retake one specific test section, instead of the full test. This enables students to showcase their skills and accomplishments gained over a lifetime – not just their test-taking abilities on a particular day.
- Superscoring: Keep your best section scores, and use your best overall score. This is beneficial because it takes the average of the four best subject scores from each ACT test attempt—and counts it as your official score.
