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.

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.
At Option SAT Dubai, UAE, training for the ACT is fun and getting scores in the upper range (28-32) and higher ( 33-35) is not difficult provided the student selects the right training platform.

“My seniors at school recommended Option to me. They all had done well on the SAT and were very appreciative of the trainers. I too had a great experience; the materials, training tools, content and lecture plans are very well structured and allowed me to work on my skills and weaknesses. I was able to improve my score by 420 points!!! Thanks Option!”
“I am very pleased to write a testimonial for Option. Great client interface, wonderful trainers and very smart service. As a parent, I was responsible for finding the right platform for my children and I found it at Option.”
“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.”
"Option is a committed institute that makes every effort and puts in the hours required to ensure that students are well prepared to take the SAT exam. Our experience with Options has been rewarding; we were especially grateful for the additional hours put in by the teachers to ensure that concepts were not just clear, but thoroughly understood.”
