How long does it take to get ACT test results back?

Hey y'all! Just got done with the ACT and the wait is killing me just a little bit – how long does it typically take to get our ACT test results back? Got some anxious vibes over here and hoping for some insight to calm them down.

Hey there! I completely understand the anxiousness that comes with waiting for test results. Generally, ACT scores are released within two to eight weeks after the test date. If you took the writing portion of the ACT as well, it might take an additional two weeks for those scores to come in. You'll be able to access your scores online through your ACT account. The ACT organization does this because they need to make sure every answer sheet is graded accurately, and the process includes multiple stages to ensure the integrity and accuracy of the scores.

Remember, this time also gives you a chance to breathe and focus on other aspects of your college preparation, like your extracurricular activities or upcoming school projects. Keep yourself engaged and the time will pass before you know it. Best of luck to you, and don't hesitate to reach out for any further guidance during your college admissions journey!
