Personalised ACT tutoring in London

The scores are important, and we know how to get them.

An alternative (and more popular) admissions test to the SAT , the ACT is accepted by all American colleges and universities, and may suit someone who enjoys science more than English. Our tutors provide expert, highly-capable tuition for the ACT, and we can help you decide if this test is right for you.

ACT and Computer-Based Testing

From September 2018, the ACT (outside of the US) is taken on computer, except in circumstances where students have special accommodations and can take it on paper. The tests will be exactly the same in format and length, with the only difference being that students will read and answer the questions on screen, and the essay will be typed. There will be scratch paper available for working, and student can still bring in their own calculators.

Where will the ACT computer-based tests be held?

The ACT will be held in schools and in external test centres. The full list of test centres is available here .

When will the ACT tests be held?

Perhaps the most exciting change is that rather than just being held on Saturday mornings, students will now be able to take the tests on Friday mornings, Friday afternoons, Saturday mornings, or Saturday afternoons! Not only that, but there will also be a test in February – a welcome addition the calendar. The full list of dates is available here .

Should I take the SAT instead?

We think students should still choose the test that is right for them based on content. Most students are very familiar with working from screens these days, so it shouldn’t be as scary for students as it is for teachers or parents! Take a look at both tests and consider taking a diagnostic test like  this one from UES . Generally speaking your academic profile will determine which test is better for you, dependent particularly on how good your maths is and how fast you can process information. The SAT has more in-depth maths, but the ACT is more time-pressured!

How should I prepare for the Computer-Based ACT?

As with all tests, preparation and practice is the key. There shouldn’t be much change in the way you prepare for the ACT, except that you should bear in mind that you won’t be able to write on the actual questions themselves. We recommend always doing working on separate scrap paper (carefully divided up by question) as you will have to in the test. Using paper tests is fine to start with, but as you get closer to the test date make sure you’re using online tests so you get used to how it feels. You can take an official practice test online  here.

Whatever you decide to do, make sure you practise as much as possible, and ask for help if you need it!

We provide a comprehensive package of tuition that begins with a diagnostic test that identifies the areas of the ACT exam that the student is best at and those that he or she requires more help with, be it English, science or maths. Your tutor will use these results within their lessons to improve the student's abilities, and increase their speed and technique so as to get the best score possible. Furthermore, we will provide all the necessary books, regular progress reports, and all the support you need. We also run one-week courses for the ACT in London.
