I know that SAT scores for 8th graders are wiped if we don't want to keep them, but does the same apply to the ACT? Thanks!!

    Dude, get a hobby and stop taking ACTs in 8th grade. You'll have a heart attack before you get out of HS.

    ...or put another way there isnt much point to it. Statistically the older you are, the better your score, so why bother spending money to take a test that young ?

    I guess you take the ACT in middle school for the talent program. I think any score before 9th grade would not be counted for college application.

    Why don't you get a practice test for him to do with timed? There is no need to spend the money.

    The 8th grade score won't count. Taking a practice test in a simulated test environment should suffice, but maybe he should be doing some fun 8th-grade-kid stuff while he can. :)

    Kaplan and PR offer free practice test in the beginning of summer. It is like a real test and they give you details score report.

    I took it in 6th, 7th, and 8th, and they're still on my online account. So no, they stay. But honestly, colleges don't care what you got in middle school.

    Also- why is everyone complaining about an 8th grader taking the ACT? Speaking as one myself, it's only a bad thing if the subject's parents are forcing him/her to.

    I would rather laugh at those junior student not even taking one test (ACT or SAT) by now. There are many reasons for a middle schooler taking ACT.

    Brooooo you choose which ACT scorers you wish to send to colleges. That's why these kinds of tests are so easy, you can try a thousand times if you wish..

    @Oboefreak- I believe that the ACT limits one to 12 tests in their lifetime. I could be wrong, but I thought I remember reading this when my son took his ACT's.
