12 ACT The ACT is universally accepted for college admission. The ACT is curriculum-based. The ACT is not an aptitude or an IQ test Questions on the ACT are directly related to what students have learned in high school courses in English, mathematics, and science. The ACT also provides test takers with a unique interest inventory that provides valuable information for career and educational planning and a student profile section that provides a comprehensive profile of a student's work in high school and his or her future plans. 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).
