Some colleges will soon require students to complete a writing test as part of their college entrance exams. Even if you aren’t required to take a writing test, you need strong writing skills to succeed in college and the workplace.
Ways to strengthen your writing skills for the ACT Writing Test:
To find out if the college you’re interested in will require a writing test, go to ACT’s website (link to http://actrs19.act.org/app3/writPrefRM/). There you can search by college, by state or even by whether or not the college requires a writing test.
