ACT Length Without Writing?

Hey, I'm taking the ACT soon, but I'm not doing the writing portion. Does anyone know how long the test will be without that section? Just want to plan accordingly.

Hey there! When you take the ACT without the writing section, the test is approximately 3 hours long. Here's a breakdown of the different sections and the time allotted for each:

1. English: 45 minutes (75 questions)

2. Math: 60 minutes (60 questions)

3. Reading: 35 minutes (40 questions)

4. Science: 35 minutes (40 questions)

You'll also have a 10-15 minute break between the math and reading sections, so your total time at the testing center might be around 3 hours and 30 minutes. Make sure to arrive early in order to get settled and complete any necessary pre-test procedures. Good luck on your ACT!
