Tips For Taking ACT Tests
  • Check your calculator – Be sure your calculator is permitted for use during the Math section; visit to find out if your calculator is allowed
  • Make sure you have your ticket – If you dont’ have your ticket yet, sign in to your ACT Web account and print your ticket now.  If you wait until test day, you could experience delays if there is heavy server traffic or if you have trouble signing in
  • Make sure you have a valid photo ID – Check out the ID requirements on the Test Day Checklist at and make sure you bring your photo ID on test day
  • Make sure to bring your printed ticket and valid photo ID to the test center – Without borth your printed ticket and a valid photo ID, you won’t be admitted to test
  • Don’t bring your cell phone into the test center – If your cell phone goes off during the test or if you are caught using it at any time during testing – even during breaks – you will be dismissed and your test will not be scored
  • Make sure your test counts (don’t cheat) – Your answer document will not be scored if you give or receive assistance during the test.  And if you suspect someone of cheating on the ACT, let us know.  We’ll take it from there.
