"THE ACT WILL CHANGE IN three major ways in September 2020: Students will have the option to test either on paper or online, they will be able to retake certain sections in lieu of retaking the entire exam and results will be superscored.

Many college-bound high school students are now wondering whether it would be better to take the ACT before or after September 2020, when the policy changes go into effect. Ponder the following three points as you decide when to sit for the ACT:

- Your timeline for applying to college.
- Your commitment to test preparation.
- Your comfort level with studying for a new exam format.
