My sons B&G said that if he takes the ACT that he also needs to take the writing portion in order for the Academy to take any of his scores. He took the ACT once (No writing). He is now signed up to take the June exam. It's no big deal he will add the writing the day he takes it. My thoughts now leave me confused.... 1 -- If the Academy only looks at the Math & English score why would the writing need to be taken? 2 -- Adding to this if the writing is mandatory does this mean the first ACT is no good? According to his Academy records they recieved his offical ACT scores but he did not get word from admissions that he needed the writing. I asked him if he asked the B&G officer but in his words. "Dad, there is no way I'm going to question it, I'm just taking the wrting section. 3 -- My DS took the writing section on the SAT and did well. I know it's a different test but does this roll over if's only a writing piece they are looking for?
