Ohh yeah, I did that Duke thing in 7th grade too. It doesn't count towards college or even high school at all. If you score high enough (I'm not sure about the ACT, but on the SAT if you got 1200 or above) then you were invited to a recognition ceremony. It really doesn't do a thing for your transcript, but schools and colleges will send promotional material (Boarding schools mostly and colleges like Duke, Vanderbilt, A&M,etc). It's too bad you didn't score as high as your friends, but this was an optional test. I know that the math section is almost impossible, but you'll do much better once you've actually learned it!

lol you can, but you'll have to do university here. the only time when we canadians have to take those tests is when we know for sure we'll be going to the states for school.

Its called the Duke TIP Scholar Program and allows 7th grade students to take the SAT/ACT. Personally i think its useless, i scored a 1387 on the old grading scale and it didnt do shi* for me.
