Students should register for ACT exam
The next ACT Assessment will be administered on Sept. 22. College-bound
high school students must register for the college admissions and placement
exam by Aug. 17 _ the deadline for having your registration postmarked. There
is a late registration postmark deadline of Aug. 31, but an extra fee is
charged for late registrations.
ACT scores are accepted by virtually all U.S. colleges and universities,
including all Ivy League schools. The ACT is not an aptitude test _ it is
an academic achievement test that measures students on what they learned
in high school. Because it is curriculum-based, colleges use ACT scores for
more than admissions decisions _ they use scores to place freshmen into classes
that the students are academically prepared to handle. For admissions decisions,
colleges use ACT score along with a student's high school grade point average,
college prep courses taken, extracurricular activities and other information.
The test fee is $24.
Students can register for the ACT by getting information from their high
school counselor or online at ACT's website _ www.act.org. The website
also has helpful information, sample tests and the opportunity to order test
prep materials including an interactive CD-Rom, ACTive Prep, which contains
actual, timed tests and helps students build a study plan.
