The ACT, a US university undergraduate admissions exam, has opened registration for their 2012-13 test dates.
We encourage students interested in applying for US study this autumn (with a view to start university in autumn 2013), who would like to sit the ACT exam to register early (as testing centres may fill up quickly). Please note, the Fulbright Commission does not administer the exam, you need to register through actstudent.org.
How do I know if I have to take an admissions exam?
Most US universities will require students to take either the SAT Reasoning Test OR ACT. However, the most competitive US universities will require students to take the SAT Reasoning Test and 2-3 SAT Subject Exams OR the ACT with Writing. Please note some US universities do not require any admissions tests (a list is online), and some international students may also be required to take an English Language Proficiency Exam.
In order to ensure that you are taking the appropriate test, check the admissions webpage of each university to which you will apply.
