What is the ACT exam syllabus?
I'm not sure if I should take SAT or ACT and knowing about the syllabus would help.

- The ACT exam is divided into four different sections – English, Mathematics, Reading, and Science – and lasts for 3 hours.
- You can also opt to attempt a fifth section, the Writing Test, which lasts for another 40 minutes, bringing the total exam time to 3 hours and 40 minutes.
- All the 215 questions you see in the test will be in the form of MCQs and not only your knowledge but also your time management skills.
This consists of 5 passages with 15 questions per passage. Each of these questions will measure your grammar, punctuation, sentence formation, and comprehension.
The Mathematics test questions include pre-algebra, elementary algebra, intermediate algebra, coordinate geometry, plane geometry, and trigonometry.
This section consists of 4 different passages with 10 questions each. The passages may be from any of these contexts – social science, natural science, humanities, and fiction.
This bit of the exam will measure your interpretation, analysis, reasoning, evaluation, and problem-solving skills in Physics, Biology, Chemistry, and Earth Sciences.
