    Who?
     
    College-bound juniors and seniors are encouraged to take the ACT Test at least once during junior year and once during senior year.
     
    What?
     
    The ACT Test is a national college admissions examination that consists of subject area tests in English, Mathematics, Reading, and Science.  The ACT Plus Writing includes the four subject area tests plus a 30-minute Writing Test.
     
    The ACT includes 215 multiple-choice questions and takes approximately 3 hours and 30 minutes to complete, including a short break (or just over four hours if you are taking the ACT Plus Writing). Actual testing time is 2 hours and 55 minutes (plus 30 minutes if you are taking the ACT Plus Writing).
     
    When?
     
    The ACT is given six times during the year:  September, October, December, February, April, and June.
     
    Where?
     
    The ACT is given at schools nationwide.  An OHS student may register to take the test at any testing site.
     
    Why?
     
    Many four-year colleges and universities, including most in Missouri, require an ACT score for admission.  Some colleges and universities may prefer a SAT score instead, however.  Please check specific college websites for admission requirements.
