The ACT Science Test

Inactive

ACT Science ​ Welcome to the ACT Science test, where you’ll see complicated graphs, dry text, and arguing scientists. The big secret to the ACT Science test is this: it’s a glorified reading test. There’s very little actual science knowledge you’ll need to know to succeed on this section. ​

The Basics

​ The test is 35 minutes long, consisting of 40 questions split over 7 passages. The passages you’ll see on the ACT Science Test can be sorted into three different categories: ​ Research Summary, which asks you to evaluate the design, data, and conclusion of an experiment. There will be three Research Summary passages on the test. ​ Data Representation, which asks you to interpret charts, tables, graphs, and diagrams. There will be three Data Representation passages on the test. ​ And finally, Conflicting Viewpoints will present two or more theories on a scientific topic. There will only be one Conflicting Viewpoint passage on the test. ​ Check out TutorMe’s ACT Preparation Course for in depth breakdowns and strategy for each of these categories. ​
