What is the ACT test? Should I take it?

The ACT test is another college entrance exam that all high school students can take. Almost every single college and university in the United States accepts the ACT (all Cal States, UC’s, and Ivy Leagues accept the ACT). It has 5 sections: English, Reading, Science, Math, and Writing. Many of our students at HarvardSquare2 Academy choose to take both the SAT and ACT test for college admissions. Those students who are stronger in math tend to prefer the ACT more because the English sections are less vocabulary-intensive. Roughly 1.5 million students take the ACT test each year, so it is just as popular as the SAT!
