When its time for high school students to take your ACT, it can seem very stressful. It could feel like all the years of being in school was for nothing, because the ACT will be the hardest test you have ever taken. But with my Quick Tips on how to prepare for the test, I am sure you will receive the best possible score you could achieve.
1. Set goals
1. Make a list of the colleges you are really interesting in attending. Do some research on the college and figure out what ACT score you need in order to attend. This will give you an idea on what you need to score on the test to make your dreams a reality.
2. Think about short and long-term goals you can achieve to help better your score. One short-term goal you could apply would be to take about 20 minutes in each subject and study the material you are working on. One long-term goal you could achieve would be to take at least five practice test before taking the actual test.
3. Another goal you could achieve is to make your schedule flexible with study time. If you have a busy schedule, it can be hard to study for the test. Take time out of your week to have at least two hours of study time, because the more you study, the better your score could be.
2. Take a practice test
There are many different practice tests that you can take to give yourself an edge on the ACT.
For example, at Foley High School many teachers allow time to take a quiz on usatestprep.com. This website is great to help you better improve your score.

3. Relax the night before the test
Don’t cram. You always want to take your time and study for a test as important as this. Take about two hours a day to study each subject to make sure that you are well-rounded in each part of the test.
If you follow these tips, I’m sure you will do great on your ACT.
