ACT Preparation Dubai

The ACT is often a brilliant substitute for the SAT since colleges often do not require students with an ACT score to have Subject SAT scores. So when one weighs the pros and cons of the different tests, the ACT, especially in the case of someone with explicit science leanings, works better than the SAT + Subject SATs.

ACT Course Dubai

The ACT is almost three and a half hours long and is designed to test students in four areas – English, Mathematics, Reading, and Scientific Reasoning. Each area is scored individually on a scale of 1-36 and the 4 scores are then averaged into a Composite Score. Regarded as one of the most rigorous tests for school seniors, the ACT poses a challenge to students who appear for it without the requisite quality of coaching.

The essay -writing portion of the test is optional but most test- takers prefer to train for it and opt to write the essay in a bid to make a more comprehensive statement of their academic skills. The new essay prompt, in place since September of 2015, is an interesting prompt that puts to test the test taker’s analytical skills as well as his ability to summon up ideas in an effort to support and refute points of view.

FAQ's about ACT
I have multiple ACT scores. Which ones should I send to schools?

If you’re applying to any schools that require all of your ACT scores, send all of your ACT scores. It is quite useful to show your progress at the ACT by presenting scores that have gradually risen.

What is the score pattern in ACT?

Each of the sections is scored on a scale of 1 -36. The scores for all the 4 sections are added and divided by four to get the average ACT score- the composite ACT score-which the universities look at.

Can I guess in the ACT Test?

Students need not worry about guessing incorrectly as there is no penalty for wrong answers in the ACT. Hence, it is good to attempt all questions in the test. Nevertheless, the ACT is notorious for being a difficult test in terms of time and sometimes students have to leave questions in order to finish in time.

Does the optional essay affect the other scores?

No. It is not part of the composite score. The essay is graded on a scale of 2 -12.

How long is the ACT test?

2 hours and 55 minutes for four sections and 40 minutes for the optional essay.

Is it advisable to take the ACT twice?

Yes. Of course it is advisable to take the ACT more than once; the first time is often a trial run to see whether the student’s assessment of his readiness was accurate. Very often the second attempt yields better scores.

Can scrap paper be used during the test?

Yes. The ACT booklets can be used as scrap as only the answer sheets are graded.

  • “Option clearly is an amazing experience. Unable to help our son with the SAT prep, my wife and I decided to select a training institute that offered flexible class schedules and provided professional training. I was impressed by the facilities at Option and after talking to a few acquaintances whose children had trained for SAT, we zeroed down on Option. The result was our son’s outstanding performance! ”

  • “My trainers worked really hard with me initially in order to bring me up to a certain competitive level. Once they had achieved that, they reinvented the class plan to make it more rigorous and in the process pushed me beyond my expectations to achieve really high scores. The one-to-one course I opted for was outstanding and my very high scores on the SAT and Subject SATs secured me admission to 4 schools in the US.”
