About the ACT

  • The ACT is a college and career readiness exam that covers four areas: English, science reasoning, math and reading. (No Writing Portion)

  • The exam is timed and takes three hours and 30 minutes to complete.

  • A composite score of a 21 (on a scale of 1-36) on the ACT can create more scholarship opportunities.

  • All MNPS juniors have the opportunity to sit for the ACT at no cost during the regular school day.

  • If you are working on raising your score, you can take the ACT more than once. Colleges or universities will take your highest composite score.
