For those of you that don’t know, ACT scores from the June 9 test have started coming out. Studying for the ACT has become a big part of my daily routine. I constantly find myself surrounded by test prep books because at this moment nothing else matters to me as much as the ACT. However I feel all this hard work and effort isn’t helping me. Here are my scores thus far: April 2018: Composite: 29 English-24, Math-28, Reading-31, Science-34 June 2018: Composite: 28 English-28, Math-30, Reading-27, Science-26 So I guess my superscore works out to be a 31 which is a positive, but I always strive for more. My goal, however, is to get all my best test scores on one sitting so I can apply to the “public Ivy League” schools as well. I also learned that the service academies only look at English and math test scores, my two lowest sections. Here’s where my frustration roots from. I genuinely put in a solid 50+ hours studying for that June 9 test: one practice test after another after another. I could honestly look myself in the mirror and say I put my best foot forward and gave that test my all. I guess I’m asking for words of encouragement. Things I should try to focus on or change about my study habits. I am going to give the ACT another go-around come July. But that is only three weeks away!! Also just an FYI, I learned early in my Junior year that the SAT is not the test for me, like emphasize not the test for me. Thanks!
