The test is a curriculum-based achievement exam and has four sections - English, mathematics, reading and science. It takes about three hours to complete. Students can take the ACT Plus Writing, which has an optional writing test that requires an additional 30 minutes.
During registration, students can select up to four universities to receive their score reports. Additional score reports are available for a fee.
The cost for the ACT test is $32 or $47 for ACT Plus Writing. Students who qualify can apply for a fee waiver through their high school counselors.
Students can register at actstudent.org. Students also can pick up registration forms from their high school counseling offices; these forms must be postmarked by Aug. 7. Late registration is available from Aug. 8 to 21 for an extra $21 fee.
