Most students take the ACT during the April or June date their junior year. Sophomores are also encouraged to take this test on one of those dates to gain exposure to the test. Students should plan to take the ACT at least twice. Taking the ACT early and more than once gives you the opportunity to retest if you feel your scores do not accurately reflect your abilities and it is beneficial your senior year when you need test scores to apply for colleges and scholarships.
