September ACT test scores are being delayed by what’s being described by ACT as an unexpectedly large number of test takers as well as logistical issues scoring the new writing section. This is, not unexpectedly, creating a lot of additional anxiety in what is already an extremely stressful process.
We have talked to a few schools and this is also creating anxiety for them as well. Right now it appears the schools are going to accept early admission applications from the September ACT applicants and hope for score releases before their notification deadlines. We hope this helps to alleviate some of the stress at least some of the college applicants and their families are now facing.
