ACT SCORES AND THE FUTURE
For more information about the ACT and to register online click here!
Students receive higher scores if they take the time to take some free ACT prep testsYou can find FREE Test Prep at act.org/academy, March2success.com, or 4tests.com. Kaplan Online Prep Live also has a variety of tests on their site; some cost money, but there is a free test section.
If you cannot afford the test fee, ask your counselor about a fee waiver. Seniors who are not pleased with their ACT scores might want to consider retaking the ACT test. Average composite score is 21 on a scale from 1 to 36. Universities use the ACT as a placement test for writing and math classes. I do have copies of every student's ACT test results.
