The ACT is a standardized examination designed to measure students’ abilities in four areas: English, Mathematics, Reading, and Science. The test is written and administered by ACT, Inc., an American nonprofit organization. All colleges and universities in the U.S. accept the ACT scores for admission and consider these scores an important factor in assessing applications.
Internationally, the test is offered five times a year: September, October, December, April, and June.

The ACT uses scaled test scores. The four main sections (English, Mathematics, Reading, & Science) are scored individually. The Raw Scores (total number of correct answers in each section) are converted into scaled scores (1- 36) for each section. The ACT composite score (1-36) is the average of all four scaled scores. There is no penalty for wrong answers.
The scores of the Writing Section (essay) are reported separately and do not affect the overall ACT composite score.
Niharika Ma’am was very helpful in early sphere of the application process and was very patient with me. She refine my interviewing skills gave me the confidence in my communication skills to help me better prepare for the college interview sessions. The way application was made, made me bag not one but two IVY League Universities. KUDOS!! to Niharika ma`am & Ednet team!!
Ednet has been instrumental in getting me into my dream school. Through Niharika Ma’am guidance, I was able to present myself in a completely new light, highlighting my strengths and ideas in the best possible manner. Everyone at Ednet is extremely approachable. I was able to improve my essays and create a better image.
Niharika ma'am, you have been a true guidance and support throughout the year. Thankful for all the efforts made by you and the Ednet team. And Reena ma'am thank you for always motivating me.
Before I came to Ednet, I never thought I could get into Swan. I had limited my potential to much lower colleges. But its only with the hard work put from everyone`s side that I could
I have been working with ednet consultants for the last three years and they have helped me in every stage of the application process. Niharika ma’am, the head counselor helped me channelize my thoughts and make a decision regarding which universities to apply to. She also helped in drafting a plan to achieve my objectives. Following this the admissions department enlists all the requirements and activities to be done. The editorial department plays a great role in brainstorming and helping us write the essays. Overall, ednet consultants has been a major player in getting me admission into a respected university like NYU.
Thank you so much! I know you’ve worked really hard on each of my applications, especially this one. You’ve edited all my essays so beautifully and read each of my thoughts I penned down even if they made no sense at all. If Reena ma’am, Betsy ma’am and Gayatri ma’am hadn’t constantly been after me, I might not have been able to meet a single deadline. I have been with them for just a year but still feel more connected to them than I do to any of my teachers in school.Their efforts were so genuine and they always managed to make me smile.Thank you ma’am for always being there for me, motivating me and supporting me. I first came to you in class 10 for my subjects after which I visited many counsellors for my college applications. Ma’am no one could guide me the way you and your team could and so I came back to you. You helped me start my high school journey and end it too. Thank you so much ma’am for caring for me like your own child. Thank You.
The entire team of Ednet is very helpful and I thank them for helping me at every juncture of the admission process. Special thanks to Reena ma'am for help in filling admission forms and overall guidance and support.
Putting together an application to business school is a daunting task. Niharika was instrumental in guiding me through the entire process and helping me prioritize. What I had been lacking was a sound second opinion on my essays. In addition to discussing my essay thoughts at length, Niharika would go through them with sincerity and provide a constructive critique. I greatly appreciate Niharika’s time, commitment, and accessibility.
