The ACT Test

The ACT test is the nationally-recognized college admissions test that all Oklahoma students must take to be admitted to university in Oklahoma and most surrounding states. The ACT is accepted by all four-year colleges in the US. This test includes basic exams in English, Mathematics, Reading and Science. Many colleges also require assessment of prospective students' writing abilities as well and a version of the ACT with a writing test is also available.
