What to Do if You Have a Low ACT Score
音量
Hello. I'm Dr. Rachelle Wolosoff. Founder of CollegeSearchExpert.com and I'm here for About.com.I'm going to give you some advice on what to do if you have a low ACT score. Do not fear if you have a low ACT score. There are many things one can do. For example, the obvious one is you might be able to get a tutor to help you with the content of the areas in the ACT. The other thing you might be able to do is retake the ACT. I wouldn't take it more than two, maybe three times. But be very careful that you do take the last ACT at a good date. So it is accepted and considered for evaluation by the college. If you take it too late what may happen is the college may not even consider that last test.Also, there's such a thing called score choice. So, that if you take it several times you'll be able to choose which ACT you'll like to submit. That's a real benefit. Some schools will even super score it, so that they will look at the best section within each sitting of that ACT. That can be very helpful.Another thing you can do if you have a low ACT score is try the SAT. Students do vary in how they do on these two tests. They are different tests. The ACT is considered a test of achievement. How well you know content. The SAT on the other hand is a test of aptitude. How well you might do in the future. And, why not try both of them, actually. To me it's an insurance policy and students are often very surprised in a good way of how they've done better on one then the other.Another thing that you should consider are those schools that have test optional applications if you will. So, if you're just not a good test taker, but you're a good student in general you may opt to apply to one of those test optional schools. And they're listed on fairtest.org. There are currently about 850 such schools and more and more are joining that list.
