On February 24th, many juniors all over the school will begin taking the ACT test, a standardized test designed to prep students for college. There’s plenty of ways for these students to prepare for this test. Students who took the test last year have offered to explain ways that they personally prepared.

“I studied using online prep websites and listened to my teacher’s advice on finishing fast,” senior Sara Ambros said.

Making sure her students are well prepared for the ACT test, English III teacher Audrey Wilson informs her students of what to expect from the test.

Senior Olivia Palomo said that she also used online prep websites like Khan Academy, a website that offers easy-to-follow lessons and lectures on everything from maths to history.

Aside from that, seniors also expressed strategies that they wished they used.

“Study, study, study,” senior Megan Hecklinger said.

She also emphasized that paying attention to what one does in class, such as APMC’s, or reading passages with questions, in English AP help.

Study, study, study.”

Ambros expressed how important it is to make sure time isn’t wasted while taking the test.

Studying for the test definitely is not the only aspect students has to worry about. They also have to worry about what it will actually be like to take the test.

“I was a little nervous,” Ambros said. “Time feels like it goes by fast, so it’s important to stay focused.

Even though the test might feel like a stressful and overwhelming experience, one must keep all the benefits of doing well on the test in mind.

“You can get scholarships and honors program admissions if you do well on the test,’ Hecklinger said. “Your score can also determine if you get automatic admissions into colleges.”
