ACT Preparation Classes

The ACT is the leading US college admissions test that determines your academic readiness for college.


About the ACT

The ACT is a standardised test required for US college application. Just like the SAT, 4000+ US colleges and universities accepts the ACT. The ACT consists of four multiple choice compulsory sections and one optional essay section, designed to test your verbal and quantitative reasoning skills.


This section tests your English language skills with questions that test your knowledge of usage/mechanics and rhetorical skills.


Designed to measure your reading skills, this section has 40 questions, 10 questions each about 4 passages. The passages are from four categories – Prose Fiction, Humanities, Social Studies, and Natural Sciences.


The Math section tests the knowledge of the students in areas like Algebra, Coordinate Geometry, Plane Geometry and Trigonometry. Some miscellaneous topics like complex numbers, matrices and logarithms are also tested.


The Science section of the ACT tests the ability of students to analyse and read science-based passages. It could be challenging in terms of tie management even though it doesn’t test scientific knowledge. Passages could be from Biology, Physics, Chemistry or Earth Science.


The new SAT format bears a strong resemblance to the ACT.
