A.C.T. meaning in college admissions?

What's up everyone! I know the ACT is another standardized test for college admissions, but can someone tell me what the acronym A.C.T. actually stands for and give me a brief overview of its structure? Thanks in advance!

Hi there! Absolutely, the A.C.T. stands for American College Testing. It's a standardized test used by colleges and universities in the United States to evaluate a student's college readiness and potential for success. The ACT is an alternative to the SAT, and colleges typically accept either test. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask!
