If you’ve ever taken an ACT, you know how hard it is to prepare for a standardized test on top of all your homework, sports, jobs, and other extracurriculars. It seems like the ACT testing dates always coincide with either massive amounts of homework, AP tests, finals, holidays, or even all of the above.
The ACT seems to have realized just how difficult it is to juggle all of these responsibilities, so it has added a brand new testing date. For the first time, you will be able to take the ACT in July 2018. With just a month between the June ACT and this new July ACT, your knowledge will still be fresh, putting you in an excellent position to improve your score.
July 14th is the exact date of the test, and the registration deadline is June 9th. Don’t worry, if you’re a rising senior, you’ll receive your scores from the July test with plenty of time to use them in your college applications. If you’re a rising junior, taking the July 14th test is a great way to get a baseline score — moving forward you can decide how much you need to prep and when to take the ACT again.
