Tokyo students can also evaluate their progress and formulate their study plans with the help of our authentic ACT practice tests, which replicate the content, timing, and structure of the real ACT. Founded in 1999, Manhattan Review is an international educational services company that has taught thousands of students how to achieve the test scores required or expected by selective undergraduate degree programs. All of our Tokyo ACT learning options focus on the most effective approaches to ACT sectional content, the most efficient study techniques, and the most successful test-taking strategies. Start preparing for your future today with Manhattan Review in Tokyo.

For all of the ACT's approximately 2 million annual test-takers, the most recent average sectional scores are 20.1 English, 20.6 Mathematics, 21.3 Reading, and 20.8 Science, for a mean composite score of 20.7. ACT has established College Readiness Benchmark scores for each of these sections, defined as a 50% or greater likelihood of a student receiving at least a B in a college course in that subject. The mean ACT sectional scores listed above exceed the benchmark for English (18), but are below the benchmark in Mathematics (22), Reading (22), and Science (23). Nationally, only 26% of students who take the ACT meet the benchmark in all four areas. Though average performance on the ACT is modest, ACT scores for applicants to selective universities are highly competitive. Students accepted to Ivy League schools, for example, almost always receive ACT sectional and total scores above 30, including Harvard (mean ACT composite score of 33.5), Yale (33.5), and Princeton (33).

Manhattan Review students frequently receive the high ACT scores necessary for realistic chances at acceptance to prestigious universities. Our teaching, combined with focused student effort, has lead to numerous acceptances to world-class institutions such as Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Stanford, UC Berkeley, MIT, Carnegie Mellon, the University of Chicago, UCLA, the University of Pennsylvania, Columbia, the University of Michigan, Johns Hopkins, Cornell, Georgetown, Dartmouth, Brown, Caltech, and many more. Our former test prep clients have become well positioned in the 21st century job market. Some have accepted positions at prominent firms in Tokyo, including Nakano Corporation, Heiwa Real Estate, Nippon Broadcasting System, Bandai Namco Holdings, and Gaba Corporation. Others are now valued employees of Fortune 500 companies, such as UnitedHealth Group, Energy Transfer Equity, Liberty Mutual Insurance Group, World Fuel Services, and Capital One Financial. Take advantage of Manhattan Review's ACT prep resources in Tokyo, and give yourself options for your undergraduate education.
