Starting In Late July 2020, Take The ACT Online and Re-Take Specific Sections

Last updated March 5, 2020

      Big news! The ACT has announced it will allow students to re-take specific sections of the ACT, take the ACT online (on a computer at a testing center, instead of traditional paper-and-pencil), and send colleges “Superscores” (“Superscoring” means only your best score in each section across all re-takes gets sent to the colleges you apply to). These changes will go into effect approximately 1 week after the July 18th, 2020 ACT test.

      What this means for the class of 2021+

      • Section re-testing!
        • Let’s say you did really well on the reading section, but struggled with the science section. Now, you can re-take only the science section (or any section(s) where you need a better score)
        • Before this change, you needed to re-take the entire ACT test to improve your score on any section.

      • Students who take the ACT online (on a computer at a testing center) will get test results WAY faster
        • Multiple choice results will arrive as soon as 2 business days after the test
        • Results take 2 weeks to arrive with paper-and-pencil testing

      • Students who have taken the ACT more than once, or retested certain sections will now have their scores “Superscored”. 
        • ACT “Superscoring” means the ACT will use only student’s best scores to create one “Superscore”. This way, colleges you apply to will only see your best ACT performance.
