The ACT Test is a standardized exam that assesses how well a student is prepared for college-level courses. The ACT is the college-prep test taken by the majority of high school students preparing to enter college because it is required by state schools in Minnesota and is accepted by almost all colleges across the US. The ACT contains four multiple-choice tests in the following areas: mathematics, English, reading and science. Additionally, the ACT contains an optional writing test. The ACT is offered seven times a year in Minnesota.

The math test is a 60-minute, 60-question exam that distributes questions amongst the following topics: Numbers and Operations, Algebra, Functions, Geometry, Statistics and Probability. The difficulty of questions increases as the question numbers get higher. For the current ACT calculator policy, click here. The math test is the second of four subject tests. Of the 2,030,038 students who took the test in 2018, the average math score was 20.5.

The scores are based on the number of correct answers. Each college and university sets its own ACT score requirements for admission into that school. Check with the schools that you are interested in applying to in order to determine the ACT score you need to achieve. You can retake the ACT and can decide which ACT scores are sent to prospective schools.
