Retaking the ACT? Get the scoop on your online account below!

Now that the April 2nd ACT has passed, ACT says to expect the results in the next 5-8 weeks.  Students will get their individual results sent to them in the mail.  Numerous students have  questions about how to set up an ACT account if they wish to retake the test.  
Below are answers to some FAQ from the 319-337-1320 helpline:

1.  What if students took the test on a national test date and created an online account prior to taking it at NPHS on April 2nd?
If students completed their identifying information (name, address,etc.) for the April 2nd ACT EXACTLY as they did when they registered online for a national test date ACT, (ie with the same abbreviations on address, no nickname, etc.) then the April 2nd results will merge with the student's online account.  Students will have their April 2nd results listed in their online account just like their earlier test(s).  
If the April 2 test results received in the mail do not appear on the ACT online account, there was a discrepancy between this identifying information.  The student will need to call 319-337-1320, talk to a customer service rep and merge their scores into one ACT account, showing both scores.
2.  What if students want to sign up for another ACT before they get their April 2nd results. Students need to create an account online and put the exact same information that they did when completing their April 2nd identifying information. This will result in the scores merging with the same account.
3.  How do students create an online account after they get their results?
Students use their ACT ID when creating their online account.  The ACT ID's will be listed at the top of their ACT results page that they will get in the mail in 5-8 weeks.
