October ACT for Junior Too Soon?
Hello all: Single dad and stressing. DS had a 34 on a practice ACT as a sophomore in April. His high school counselor recommended that he take the ACT early this year to get it out of the way and clear the deck for subject tests in the spring. I understand the ACT is based more on school learning. My question is, would signing up for the ACT for October 28 be too soon (with December 9 as back up)? Or would December 9 be better (with February as backup). I guess the advantage to October is that studying wouldn't be complicated by finals, but obviously want him to have his best shot for doing well and hopefully just one time. Would really appreciate any perspectives.
