ACT 2019-20 Preparation Tips, Eligibility Criteria, Exam Pattern, Form, Basicfirst - eLearning App


The American College Testing Examination introduced in November 1959 by the University of Iowa, is a standardized test used for college admissions in the United States. The exam is conducted to measure a student’s aptitude and critical thinking. The exam is similar to the SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test). Currently, the American College Testing exam is managed by ACT, a nonprofit organization.

Despite the change in exam pattern, there is an increase in the number of students registering for the ACT exam. The ACT exam is usually taken by high school graduates and those above the age of 13 years.


No Age Bar: As per ACT’s current guideline, any student above the age of 13 years is eligible to sit for the exam. However, the maximum age of application is laid by the organization for this exam.

The Applicable Grade: Any student in 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12 standards including the students from other educational backgrounds can also appear in the exam.

Number of Attempts: A student within the United States can give the exam, 7 times in a year. However, those from other locations are eligible to apply 5 times in a year.

No Restrictions for PH: Any student with any disability (both physical & learning disabilities) is eligible to apply for the ACT. The duration of the exam has also been increased to 50% for such students.

Application Deadlines: Students should take the ACT at least two months before the application deadlines of the institutions because scores for the ACT are normally declared two–eight weeks after the test date.
