A-List offers the very best, customized tutoring for the ACT. We have developed our own extensively researched materials, which combine content, techniques, and question strategies to assist students in mastering the skills necessary for success on the exam . Although the SAT is historically more popular in the Middle East, US universities view the two tests identically, and differences in timing and structure make the ACT a better option for some students.

About the Test:
The ACT is a US university admissions examination that consists of subject tests in English, Mathematics, Reading, and Science plus an optional essay.
- The English section is 45 minutes long and has 75 multiple choice grammar and writing convention questions.
- The Mathematics section is 60 minutes long and has 60 multiple choice Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry, and Trigonometry questions.
- The Reading section is 35 minutes long and has 40 multiple choice reading comprehension questions.
- The Science section is 35 minutes long and has 40 multiple choice data interpretation questions.
- The Writing Section is a 30 minute optional essay which generates an independent score (not factored into the composite score).
Each subject test is scored on a 36-point scale. The final, composite ACT score is the average of the four subject scores rounded to the nearest whole number.
Lucy A., Jumeirah College, +8 ACT
My experience with A-List was incredibly helpful! Not only did Thomas teach me skills that were integral for the ACT, but I have developed my thinking skills by learning these techniques and use them in my own school work now! Thank you to everyone at A-List!
Scott S., Dubai College, + 8 ACT
Coming from a British curriculum school I did not know what to expect out of the test and was extremely unprepared, however, after just a couple months of sessions I was feeling much more comfortable with the content and material on the ACT… Overall, I would highly recommend using a-lists services as it helped me go up a total of 8 ACT points, something I don’t believe I could’ve done alone.
Mostafa K., GEMS World Academy, +6 ACT
I would like to thank A-list and my tutor for helping me achieve an amazing score on my ACTs. I know that I would not have been able to receive the same score if it wasn’t for my tutor at A list. Thomas is a great tutor who helped me with all my weaknesses and helped me develop my strengths. He gave me great and very useful advice, and the strategies he gave me came very in handy and were incredibly helpful. I would recommend A-list’s tutoring services to anyone.
