ACT extended time: if you don't do a section will they invalidate the entire test

<p>My son took the ACT for a talent search test and was in the extended time room, where the students can determine for themselves how much time to allot to each subtest. As a result of poor planning, he left an entire section blank. Has anyone else done this? Did they go ahead and score the test or just invalidate it?</p>

<p>They would score the test.</p>

<p>Whatever section he skipped he would receive an aberrantly low score.</p>

<p>^Yes, they will score the test. It would have been a better strategy, however, to take at least 1 min and fill in the section randomly as the ACT doesn't penalize wrong answers...</p>
