Hello! The ACT is an acronym for American College Testing. It's a standardized test used by colleges and universities in the United States as part of their admissions process. The exam is designed to assess a student's readiness for college, measuring their skills in English, math, reading, and science. Some students also take the optional writing section, which assesses their essay-writing abilities. Best of luck if you're planning to take the ACT!
