How to choose a perfect ACT date? Basic recommendations

Major factors to keep in mind:

  • How many attempts you’ll need

It’s always better to save some time for retakes. We suggest taking a test multiple times (just in case): one in fall of the junior year, one in the spring, and if it is necessary, you’ll be able to retake ACT in the summer or fall of senior year.

  • College admission deadlines and scholarships deadlines

Remember, that it takes 3 weeks to get your ACT scores, so schedule a test in advance.

  • How much time you’ll need for preparation

Don’t schedule a retake right after previous test. If you take tests in December and February, you won’t have enough time to study, so the results won’t differ too much

  • Look into your personal calendar

Check in advance if ACT dates don’t interfere with any important events in your life, like football season games or science fairs.
