Advantage Testing LSAT Q&A

Do colleges look at how many times I take the ACT?

Each college and university has its own policy regarding how it considers ACT scores. Some schools want to see all of your ACT scores, though they may consider only the highest scores when making admissions decisions. Other schools allow you to submit only your highest ACT scores. Still other schools may superscore your test, meaning they will evaluate only your highest score on each of the four sections (English, Mathematics, Reading, and Science) across multiple test administrations. You can now send official ACT superscore reports to schools that accept them. It is always a good idea to confirm the specific test reporting policies of the colleges and universities to which you plan to apply.

Do not worry if you feel that you need to retake the test! Most students take the ACT more than once. We recommend that you first take the test after you have practiced and feel comfortable with the content, ideally by the spring of your junior year. This schedule will leave plenty of time to continue preparing and retake the test the following summer and fall, well in advance of college application deadlines.
