I took the practice ACT last year without any prep and got a 23 on it. I took it again this year and got a 24. I got..
24s-English and Science
23s-Reading and Math
and an 8 on the writing portion.
I was really disappointed with my scores, because I know i'm capable of a much higher score. I'm in all advanced classes at my school and I normally do well on tests. I think my major problem is that I'm not good with timed tests. I had to guess on about 8 questions for the english and reading due to running out of time. I also guessed on about 10 on the math, because I ran out of time and for the science I guessed on about 5 and had to leave 3 blank, because I ran out of time. Are these good scores since I had to guess on so many? What are some tips so that I can get through the sections with the amount of time we are given. I want to take it again in June and am prepping online and with Barron's. I hope to get at LEAST a 29.
