not only serves practice but it also
helps determine your eligibility for the

year and score high become candidates
for this award the acct is using
accepted by virtually all colleges and
universities the questions on the actr
curriculum-based meaning that they are
directly related to what the student has
learned in high school colleges and
universities not only use a CT scores to
determine eligibility for admission but
also for placement and applicable
freshman year courses private sector

the student about four weeks after the
test day you may take the acct more than
once
