When is the best date to take the ACT?

  1. Aim to take the ACT the first time inĀ December, April or June.
  2. Order Test Information Release (TIR), then in 6 to 8 weeks after the ACT test you will get a copy of questions, your answers, and the correct answer key.
  3. Now, you can eliminate your weak points. Aim for a fall ACT retake and get the better score.
