    hi. first question posted, apologies if it is in wrong section.

    just wondering how the US ACT maths exam differs from the A-level/IB maths section? i personally think its a bit easier, certainly can't find any calculus questions. my son (20 yrs old ) performed quite badly in his IB higher level mathematics exam (3/7). he has managed to get into his university of choice but worries his math (and overall IB) score may put finance companies off when applying for internships and also may impede his masters degree applications (GRE/GMAT withstanding). i would like to ask whether the ACT exam is taken as 'seriously' here as the IB/A-levels would be. he is taking the ACTs this summer.

    any and all help is appreciated.
