American College Testing, popularly known as ACT, offers various solutions and products for improving the college and career readiness of students. One of the most popular services offered by it is the ACT college readiness assessment which is a curriculum and standards based educational and career planning tool that assesses students' academic readiness for college. The ACT test scores gauge a student’s learning throughout high school and provide colleges and universities with information for recruiting, advising, placement and retention. Rather than being an IQ test, ACT is an exam whose questions are directly related to what students have learned in high school courses.
ACT was administered in November 1959 as a competitor to SAT, which still remains its major rival. Today ACT is accepted by all four-year colleges and universities in the USA and is administered in many countries across the world.

ACT Test Format
The ACT exam consists of four multiple-choice tests: English, Mathematics, Reading and Science. The average of the scores in these four subjects makes the composite ACT exam score. The student also has the option to take an ACT Writing test which does not add to the composite score. The following table provides a brief picture of the ACT test.

Hello dear student,
Uni Junction Transistor (UJT) is also known as
double base diode
. It acts as a
instead of amplifying the signals. In UJT the PN junction is formed by lightly doped N-type silicon with heavily doped P-type material on one side. The UJT is a
terminal device and the diode is a
terminal device. In diode there are p-type and n-type regions whereas in UJT emitter type region is also there. UJT also acts a voltage breakdown device when the input is applied between emitter and one base terminal which shows that emitter is responsible for current flow in the device as the current varies.
I hope this is helpful to you.
