Frequently Asked Questions

UWorld provides thousands of ACT exam-like questions so that you will get used to the format, difficulty level, and types of questions you will see on the ACT exam. But, more importantly, you are provided with detailed explanations for every answer choice. These rationales provide step-by-step problem-solving guidance, explain why you may have made a mistake, and help you deepen your understanding so you answer correctly next time. In addition, our self-assessments and performance reporting help identify areas you need to work on the most, so you don’t waste your time.

Yes! The 3,200+ questions that you have access to cover every subject and skill that you will encounter on the ACT exam. And it provides practice at different difficulty levels. Many students who practice using the more difficult questions feel over prepared on exam day. When they sit for their exam, the exam feels just like practice.

Do you want to make the highest score you possibly can? If so, then yes, ACT test preparation is worth it. Not doing any prep and just hoping for the best won’t get you far. The only reliable way to improve your chances of a high score is to practice with a high-quality, realistic resource where you can learn from your mistakes and build confidence.

The short answer is that you should begin preparing for the ACT exam as early as possible. But the exact amount of time depends on several factors that differ from person to person. You should consider your goal score and your beginning score to determine how much you need to improve. You also need to determine where you need to improve. Do you just need to raise your score in math, or do you need to improve in all areas? You also need to determine how much time per day or per week you have to dedicate to studying for the ACT. Usually, the more time you have before your test date, the less intense your prep needs to be. As a rule of thumb for most students, we highly recommend beginning your ACT prep at least three months before the exam, if not sooner. 

While our ACT practice questions are certainly some of the most realistic out there, our real difference is our answer explanations. Talk to any of our users, read any of our testimonials, and you will hear over and over again how much of a difference our explanations made in student’s score improvement. Being able to learn from your mistakes, clear up misconceptions, and understand how to approach questions the right way is far more powerful than just answering questions alone.

The ACT exam is offered multiple times a year and there are no limits to how many times you can take it. Some students take the ACT for the first time very early, sometimes as early as eighth grade. But, the more you have learned in school, the better you are likely to do. So, most students take the ACT test in the spring of 11th grade and/or in the fall of their senior year. It is important to know when you college applications are due, and make sure you give yourself at least two attempts at the test to send your best score to the college of your choice.

Our 90, 180, and 360 day subscriptions include self-assessments that are full-length ACT practice tests so you can mimic the exam experience. The self-assessments come with a score predictor that tells you what you could expect to make on the actual exam and breaks down each subject area so you know the concepts you need to work on the most to improve your score. 

Once you take the ACT exam, you can receive a total score of 1 up to 36. While there is no definition of a “good” score, you can see where you rank compared to how others scored. If you score a 20, that is a good – or average – score. If you score a 29, then you are in the 90th percentile. And, you are in the 99th percentile if you have an ACT score of 34 or above.

Frequently Asked Questions

New Purchase: All new subscriptions go into effect from the time they are activated and not at the time of setup/purchase. A subscription can be activated immediately or any time thereafter. If your initial purchase consists of multiple courses (Qbank, Self-Assessment exam, CCS, etc.), each can be activated individually and independently via your account on our website. This process of activating a subscription after purchase allows you the flexibility to start a subscription when you are truly ready to use it.

We recommend that all subscriptions be activated within 180 days of setup/purchase. Once a subscription is activated, it cannot be paused or suspended for any reason and will run continuously for the duration of the course material.

Renewal: A renewal is an extension of time to continue access to a current activated subscription. Because a renewal is an extension to an already active subscription, it is effective from the existing expiration date, not from the day of purchase and cannot be deferred to start at a later date/time.

Note: All of our subscriptions are based on the Eastern Time Zone (GMT/UTC -5 hours or New York Time), which may be different than your local time zone.

Individuals purchasing our CPA Review product may finance their purchase using Affirm during checkout process. Your eligibility depends on your credit score and other criteria, as per Affirm’s policies (outlined here). A soft credit check, a credit check that does not affect your credit score, will be performed by Affirm to determine your loan eligibility. You will need a US based bank account to qualify.

All refunds are evaluated on a case-by-case basis for products purchased directly from UWorld. One case has no bearing on another. Refund amounts determined by UWorld are final.

In-App Purchases: We are unable to process any refunds for purchases made via mobile application (in-app). Please contact Apple for all refund/credit requests for Apple in-app purchases.

USMLE Step 2 CS, Step 3 CCS, Subject Reviews & Self-Assessment Exams: These subscriptions are non-refundable, non-transferable, and cannot be converted into another subscription.

CPA Review: Students may request to cancel their CPA review product only within 10-days of activation of any of the materials. To qualify for a refund, no more than 10% of the course (lectures, Qbank, or a combination there-of) may have been used per exam section. All CPA Review refunds are subject to a cancellation fee of $75 (for single section purchases) or $250 (for package purchases), plus any applicable shipping charges. No return of merchandise is necessary.

All other Qbanks: Refunds are considered for subscriptions of more than 30 days. Refund amounts are based on the number of days elapsed since the subscription start date or the number of questions used, whichever amounts to a higher deductible.

Example scenarion: An individual purchases a 180-day Qbank subscription and generates a few test blocks equal to 20% of the questions in the Qbank. After 45 days, he/she requests a refund. Because the elapsed duration is greater than the percentage of questions used, the refund amount will be based on a subscription converted to the closest duration (60 days) by deducting the applicable 60-day subscription fee from the refund. In the same scenario, if the individual had used 85% of the questions, the refund would be 15% of the subscription fee paid.

Note 1: A processing fee of 10% (minimum of $10 and maximum of $25) will be applied to all refund amounts.

Note 2: All refunds, pro-rated or otherwise, must be requested within 360 days of original purchase. Refunds for purchases made more than 360 days ago will be issued as non-refundable, non-transferable store credit.

Note 3: Subscribers must notify UWorld of their intent to obtain a refund before activating their subscription (or) during the active duration. If the reset option is used or all of the questions are used, no refund will be allowed (see “I want to reset/delete my Qbank test history (or) start all over again, is this possible?” below for further details). No refunds will be offered for expired subscriptions.

Note 4: For combination package purchases, individual subscription fees will be applied when calculating the refund. If any self-assessment Exam(s) is utilized from a package, the entire purchase is rendered non-refundable.

Note 5: Although access to Qbanks via certain mobile devices is provided as an additional feature, it is not intended to be a replacement for computer access, and no refunds or cancellations will be honored due to user inability to install and/or use the provided software on any mobile device (regardless of whether the device meets the minimum system requirements).

Please use the following steps to purchase a renewal for your subscription:

  • Log in to your account on our website
  • Click on the User Icon in the top right corner of the screen
  • Click on the Renew button corresponding to your subscription
  • Select the Renewal duration you wish to purchase
  • Verify your profile information, address, and educational status, then click the Update button
  • Enter your Billing address and credit/debit card information, then click Review Order
  • Verify that the correct package is in your cart and click Place Order

Upon a successful transaction, you will be sent a confirmation email receipt.

A renewal is an extension of time to continue accessing an active subscription, and it will not start the subscription over, provide a reset, or grant access to additional questions that were not previously accessible. Because a renewal is an extension to an already active subscription, it is effective from the existing expiration date, not from the date of purchase, and cannot be deferred in any way to start at a later date/time.

Please note that to qualify for renewal pricing, you will need to renew the course before it expires. Renewals are not offered to expired subscriptions. If you fail to secure a renewal before the expiration date, you will need to purchase a new subscription at the regular price directly from our website to regain access to the material.

Note: All times and dates displayed for subscription expiration correspond with the Eastern Time Zone (GMT/UTC -5 hours or New York Time), which may be different than your local time zone.

Note: If your initial purchase was a combination package, you will need to renew each active subscription individually. You do not need to renew a course that has not been activated.

You may request to upgrade or downgrade your subscription purchase as long as it has not been activated. If you purchase a combination package, all included subscriptions must be unused. Please be advised that current subscription pricing will apply.

If your subscription has been activated, unfortunately, we cannot upgrade it retroactively. If seeking to downgrade, please refer to our refund policy for available options.

We do not offer custom duration(s) or combination packages other than those outlined on the website. Please refer to our purchase page for currently available subscriptions (including discounted combination packages for some products).

Self-Assessment exam subscriptions are for 14 days each. Subscribers whose active subscription(s) have not expired can purchase renewals from 7 days or more at any time before their active subscription expires. Please refer to the respective course description page for renewal options.

We offer a demo on each of our product pages that contains a sample of the product interface and a few sample questions. We do not offer guest/trial accounts to test our software and view materials.

It is possible to purchase a subscription as a gift for someone else. However, the intended recipient will need to register an account on our website (or have an account registered for them, with their profile information entered accurately). If the user is present at the time of purchase, the purchase can be made from their account on our website using any credit or debit card with a Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover logo.

If the user is not present, or you wish for the gift to be a surprise, please contact Support directly using the contact form to arrange payment for the gift subscription. You will need to provide the user’s registered email address so the account can be located.
