ACT Essay Help?

<p>I took the SAT and would usually get a 10/11 on my essay on the test and in SAT Prep, however, my ACT essay is an 8 (both times- composite is a 33). Does anyone have any tips to increase my score? I got a 5 on AP Lang Comp, so I think I'm a pretty good writer, is ACT looking for something special?</p>
