Juniors and seniors have options when it comes to college admission tests. Some students take the SAT, some the ACT, some take both. The ACT is a test that measures what a student has learned. It has 5 components: English, math, reading, science, and an optional writing test.
Your ACT score is one of the major criteria that admissions officers will be looking at when they make the decision whether or not to accept you. If you take the test early you’ll have plenty of time to retake it if you need to. Don’t push the ACT off to the last minute.
April 12th is the next available test date for the ACT. The registration deadline for that test is March 7th.
June 14th is the last test date available for seniors. The registration deadline for that test is May 9th.
