And as I explained to you earlier in the article "The Hidden Objects of Certificates, Application, and Admission to Turkish Universities," the ACT is an international test that you can take alongside your high school diploma.
Today we'll talk about it in detail.
• It is an abbreviation for "American College Testing," meaning that it's a study evaluation test. It is one of the most popular university entrance tests in the world, especially in America.
Its main objective is to measure the student's skill and their readiness to study in different disciplines.
• The test contains 60 questions that you have to answer in 4 hours, divided into four main sections: English, mathematics, science, reading, and of course, the test is in English.
• The test is very similar to the SAT, but the ACT is more comprehensive and curriculum-based, and you can also apply for it more than once a year.
The content of the test is as follows:
• The English part contains:
a. Part 1: It contains 75 questions that you have to answer in 45 minutes. This part is about language grammar, you may answer some questions in the 'True or False' way, and you may find other sentences with blanks that you are required to choose the appropriate word grammatically. And also, there are linguistic passages followed by some questions.
b. Part 2: It is the Mathematical part that contains 60 questions that you have to answer in 60 minutes, and this part is divided as follows:
