    whyTake
    #1: Most Colleges Will Require Scores
    Most colleges want to see how you did on the ACT and/or SAT. Colleges will accept either one—you don't need to submit both unless you want to.
    #2: Scholarships
    Many colleges reward students with Merit Scholarships, which are based on grades, class rank and test scores.
    #3: The ACT is Content Based
    Designed to measure curriculum knowledge and achievement in: English, mathematics, reading and science. ACT is based on what you learned in school.
    #4: You Can Send 4 Free Scores to Your Schools of Choice
    Most schools, if you send them more than one ACT score, will simply use your highest ACT composite score from a single test date. So, if you took the ACT three times and received composite scores of 28, 29, and 30, the school would use your composite and section scores of the test date when you received a 30.
    #5: College and Career Planning
    The ACT includes a free education and career planning segment to help you plan for college, comparing your interests with the kinds of majors and occupations that may be right for you.
