Let’s face it: nobody looks forward to taking the ACT, except maybe the few brainiacs who are all but guaranteed to get a perfect score. Instead of spending weeks slaving away reading study guides and taking practice tests what if you could just pay someone to take the ACT for you? You can- and it’s easier than you might think.
Because the providers of the ACT want to create as few barriers to test-taking as possible, historically a student id has always been an acceptable form of identification on testing day. Once you have selected the person you want to take the ACT for you, you just need to create a realistic- looking fake id with your name and their picture, and you should be in business.
While it might be easy to game the system, it does come with a price—genius test-takers don’t work for cheap! Depending on where you live and who you hire, expect to pay up to $3,500, plus travel expenses, if applicable. There are some great resources for these “Pay for Testing” kind of services, as there are several people with experience in the industry. The stories of genius test-takers Sam Eshaghoff, Joshua Chefec, and George Trane are all available to read about on the internet, though, of course, they only became famous after they were charged with fraud and criminal impersonation.
Sound a little intense? Don’t worry, those that were paying for their services were only charged with misdemeanors. To be on the safe side, it’s best practice to stash away a little extra cash in your ACT genius test-taker fund, just in case the lawyer fees pile up or you miss a lot of work due to incarceration. And if you’re more the type to stay on the very safe, jail-free side, it’s best practice to just keep taking ACT practice tests on Union Test Prep and get a great score on the ACT for yourself. But hey, it’s always good to have options!
