ACT Science Section Highlights

  • You have 35 minutes to answer 40 questions.
  • The Science section is really a reasoning or logic test.
  • The focus is on interpreting data and information and making logical conclusions – NOT knowings specific scientific facts.

Selected Tips & Strategies

  • Practice, practice, practice. The science section of the ACT is unlike any test you take in school. In order to be prepared, you must practice – a lot.
  • The ACT does not test your science knowledge per se. It tests your ability to read, interpret, and analyze graphs, charts, and tables – based on science. Again, practice if you want to do well!
  • Yes, you should read the small paragraphs in each science passage, but do so quickly. Most of the questions will refer back to the graphs, charts, and tables.
