Doon becomes an ACT Centre October 2013
The ACT is a curriculum-based test testing boys in English, Mathematics, Reading and Science Reasoning. Since the ACT has a Science Reasoning section and its Maths section measures at a higher level (trigonometry) than the SAT Reasoning Test (geometry), students strong in these fields may benefit by taking the ACT. Additionally, some boys applying to the most competitive universities will prefer the option to complete their admissions test requirement in one testing date (ACT with Writing), rather than two (SAT Reasoning Test on one testing date, SAT Subject Tests on a second date).
The school is also an SAT centre but has introduced professional ACT preparation which is of particular use to boys applying to major in science degrees in the USA.
