Hey there! I understand how stressful it can be to try and improve your standardized test scores, especially with college applications approaching. Here are a few tips that helped my child improve their scores: 1) Take practice tests: Becoming familiar with the test format can really help improve your scores. Both the College Board and ACT websites offer free practice tests. 2) Identify your weak areas: After taking the practice tests, figure out which sections you're struggling with the most and focus on improving in those areas. 3) Consider a prep course or tutor: Sometimes having a structured course or a tutor to guide you can make a significant difference. 4) Set a study schedule: Consistency is key when preparing for these exams. Make a study plan and stick to it. Best of luck with your test prep, and I'm sure you'll see improvements in your scores with some dedicated practice!
