1、首先要明确,这次改革的区域是美国本土以及其领土。对国际考区的影响比较小。



2018年9月国际考区全部改为ACT机考。2020年9月美国考区改为ACT机考和纸考并行,机考和纸考的考试时长相同,考生可以自己选择。成绩单也不会标注机考或纸考。美国有些高中有允许本校学生延时考ACT的政策,会有多一半时间、多一倍时间甚至不限时,注意跟学校升学指导咨询确认。

如果学校允许延时考ACT,那么要比参加SAT有优势,这个政策允许考生降维打击,会有极大的优势。


预计到2020年7月25号左右(7月18号考试的一周左右),美国考区会开放机考的注册通道,具体考试日期和安排也要等到7月揭晓。同时,纸考仍按以前的方式注册,不受影响。在注册7月纸考的时候,ACT官网会显示9月可供机考的考场信息。

ACT官网称:机考后,选择题的最快出分时间是2个工作日;纸考选择题的出分时间是2-8周。写作一般在选择题出分后的2-3周出分。

对于机考和纸考的区别,官网是这样阐述的:In 2015, ACT introduced online administrations in State & District testing. Each year since, tens of thousands of students have completed the ACT online with no major technology issues or concerns about scores. In the fall of 2018, the ACT International test moved online as well; again with excellent results. We will ensure similar results are achieved when the ACT National test goes online in September 2020.


2、从2020年9月开始,全世界的机考成绩都会自动生成superscore,学生自己选择是否递交给大学。


对于机考的同学,除了出分快的福利。这个免费赠送的superscore也算个福利。

关于大学是否接受superscore,ACT是这样解释的:

Colleges establish their own policies for admissions and scholarship decisions. ACT will supply them at least one full composite score with each superscore, plus all of the scores from the test events that are part of the superscore composite.

Not all colleges accept superscores but many do. Colleges and universities typically provide information about their score-use policy on their website. Students interested in applying to a particular college should consult its website to determine their score-use policy as this information can help inform whether a student should retest.

We encourage colleges and universities to consider superscoring as their score-use policy because, as our research shows, superscores are just as predictive – if not more predictive – of first-year grades as other scoring methods.

Superscoring benefits colleges by providing a more accurate indicator of how students are going to perform once in college. This is useful information from an admissions perspective as well as from a student success perspective because it more accurately identifies and provides appropriate resources to students who may be at-risk academically.

所以superscore只是个附加的分数,ACT只是给出了官方的拼分成绩单而已。


3、接下来讲“单科重考”,这个部分只与美国机考相关。注意关键词是”美国“ ”机考“,意思是必须要达到这两个必要条件,国际考场的学生可以不用纠结了。

ACT官网是这样说的:Beginning in September 2020, superscores will be available to students who test at international test centers. ACT is evaluating the availability of section retesting for students who test at international test centers in the future but it won’t be offered at international test centers this year.

美国纸考维持原状,新增美国机考单科重考。

1. 我有资格参加单科重考吗?如果你在9月之前参加过美国纸考(ACT举办的或美国学校举办的),那么9月的时候,你有资格报名美国机考单科重考。不管重考几科,都在同一天考。但是考单科和考全科的考生是在不同的房间。

Starting in September 2020, section retests will be available to all students who have completed the full ACT battery (English, reading, math and science) either through national (weekend), state or district (school day) within the last five years (September 2016).

Section retests are offered online only and are identical in content and follow the same format as the full ACT test. They are offered seven times a year and on the same dates as the national ACT test.

问题2:我参加单科重考有什么好处吗?When students take a section retest, they can focus their studying on that subject alone, saving time and allowing for more concentrated study. If their section retest score is higher than a previous score in that subject, their composite score will also increase.

问题3:重考后的分数改变的是什么?单科重考只能改变superscore, 如果大学接受拼分,我们可以在ACT官网中递送superscore, 与此同时ACT也会自动附带单次考试的最高分。The individual section retests will only impact the superscore. If a student wants to send a superscore to an institution, ACT will always send the highest intact full ACT composite score as well.

相应地,大学会收到我们递交的superscore, 以及单次最高分,外加组成superscore的所有考试成绩。

Colleges will receive the superscore composite and ACT will always include the highest single full-test composite plus the score data for any test event that contributed to the calculation of the superscore.

写作也可以单科重考。The essay will count as one of the sections they can retake.

因为不是所有大学都接受拼分,所以单科重考不是所有考生的首选。不过越来越多的学校开始接受ACT拼分。所以建议大家好好准备,先考出一个自己满意的成绩。在此基础之上,再利用下单科重考的便利之处。
