I have a 32 composite with a 28 in the science section!!

Anyone know how to bring it up?? I know the basic strategies already

I am aiming for a 31 + in science! Just need a couple questions more right!

    What is the main issue you are experiencing when doing the science section? Is it time?
  • 93tiger1693tiger16 - Posts: 492 Member
    The main issue most people have with the science section is not having enough time to do it. You essentially only have, what, 5 minutes per section? You have to be able to understand what the given passage is saying, and then derive your answers from the tables/charts. Practice makes perfect here.

    after i take a practice test and look at the ones i got wrong, i have no clue why i got it wrong in the first place. Time is not an issue. I finish on time. It tends to be the last question in each science passage that i get wrong, the ones that are more complex

    Read the explanations. Do you understand the explanations? If not, you could always ask someone.

    I do sometimes but even if I do, it doesn't help me with my next practice test since it's not like their was "material" i didn't know

    Listen to 93tiger16; he/she is spot on. Practice really does make perfect when it comes to the ACT science section. Take it from me; my first time taking the test, I got a 29 on science. After a ton of science practice, I got that bad boy up to a 35. It's not impossible; you just have to commit yourself to it.

    I brought my science score from a 24 to a 31 in 2 months just by taking practice tests
