The ACT is a standardized test that measures proficiency in five core areas: English, Math, Reading, Science and Writing (optional). The purpose of the test is to measure the readiness of a high school student for college. As a key component of the application process, students will submit their ACT test score to colleges and universities. Admissions officers will then review scores as a common data point that can be used to compare all applicants.
The ACT science test consists of 40 questions that must be answered within the 35-minute time limit. The test consists of several science passages, each of which focuses on one of the following subject areas:
Each passage is presented in one of three different formats: Data Representation, Research Summary and Conflicting Viewpoints. The exam passages and questions focus on scientific topics and do not require students to recall specific scientific facts. Instead, students are asked to understand, analyze and evaluate information using the various paragraphs, graphs, tables, charts and diagrams that make up each passage.
To help students with their comprehension of these topics, we have created a 12-week ACT Science Prep Course that consists of the following:
During the Learning Phase, students will learn diverse strategies to analyze and evaluate word problems, graphs and tables. The students then will move forward to demonstrate what they have learned during the Practice Test Phase. Upon completion of this course, students will be well prepared to successfully pass this section of the ACT exam.
Ramana Coaching Center believes that by adding the ACT Science Course to our SAT Prep Program, we will prepare students for both SAT (Math, Reading & Writing) and ACT (Math, Reading, Writing and Science).
