This isn't an issue whose fault lies with the ACT but instead my own, and I was wondering what kind of advice you guys could give.
For some reason, I cannot score above a 30-31. I've taken near a dozen practice tests and have studied on the side, getting to know the kinds of questions that they ask, coming to understand patterns, etc.
In terms of the details of my actual scores, I generally get 35-36's on the English consistently, then 30-32's on the rest of the sections. However, if this was the case for every single test, then I'd come to the conclusion that, naturally, this is my peak and there can be nothing I can do to change that, but, I have scored 36's twice on Reading, and 34's twice on Math with my highest Science being a 33.
But whenever I score those, my English drops to a 30-33. I don't know how or why this is and it's pretty frustrating because I understand that if I were to get a 36 in both Reading and English, with my averages in Math and Science being 30's, I could jump up to a 33.
So what might be the problem with me? Are there in-test strategies that I should follow that might remedy this? Help lol.
