Changes to the Fall 2018 ACT

The ACT recently announced that it is making two major changes to the test that will go into effect in September of this year.

First, students who have been approved for time and a half (Timing Code 6) will no longer have a self-paced block of time in which to complete the test. They will now have a hard stop after each section. Please see here for more information on these changes.

Second, for students with regular time, the ACT will be adding a mandatory experimental section that will be 20 minutes long prior to the essay. This section will not be factored into your score and, perhaps, some students will use the time as an added moment of rest before diving into the essay.
