ACT writing

<p>so how do this writing part work? is it included in the composite score. i took writing in june just cause i thought most colleges wanted writing.</p>

<p>it is separate from composite.</p>

<p>who can tell me the different between SAT and ACT writing? length? how each is scored? percentile?</p>

<p>you get 5 more minutes on act writing, and you can take up as much space as needed on it. they use the same scoring system (out of 12 points)</p>

<p>so i can write like five or six pages long? they give me extra paper/room for that?</p>

<p>I don't remember exactly how many pages are available to write on, but I am positive there are at least four. I do not think it would be possible to write fast enough to fill the space provided in the time allowed. I believe that is the point; the ACT developers feel that nobody should run out of space in which to write their essay.</p>
