It's a timed test, and there are 215 questions on the ACT test, usually getting more difficult as you progress through each section. It's best to not spend too much time on difficult questions, but answer all the ones you're sure of first, and then go back and attempt the harder ones again. You're not penalized for wrong answers, so if you're completely baffled, it's fine to guess. You'll receive your scores between 4-7 weeks after taking the test. You may view them online before that, by paying a small fee, but your college won't get your scores any sooner.
Because the test is so important, and can have such a huge impact on your future, it's important to do as well as possible on the test. And if you choose, you can retake the test in your senior year. If you score higher, you can have that score sent to colleges instead. If you score lower, you can use the results from the other ACT test. It's up to you which score to use, which means taking it again and getting a lower score can't hurt you, but only help you. So if you think you can do better, you should definitely give it a shot.
