Happy October, readers! I would like to remind all of you students the importance of taking your standardized tests as soon as you can once you are a Junior. Trust me; it will be a lot less stressful if you take the ACT during your Junior year. Why is this? Simply because if you choose to retake the test to achieve a higher score, you will have enough time before you apply to colleges. I encourage taking the test more than once, just so you can try to exceed your previous score.
Make sure to prepare for the test in advance. Also, go to sleep early the night before! I know these tests are on weekend mornings and you do not want to be falling asleep in the middle of the exam. Make the smart choice to get plenty of sleep and eat a good breakfast before the test. I wish you all luck!
