For the ACT Residual test, QUTC uses only the math part of the test. The test duration is 1 hour. The test is conducted once a year (preferably in the month of November). The math part of the ACT is one of the exams used at QU to determine an applicant’s partial or complete exemption from the Foundation math requirements.  The partial and complete exemption criteria are based on the students’ Foundation specialty and on the score* he/she obtained on the exam.
