Hello! I’m only going into my sophomore year, but my mom bought me an ACT prep book with five practice tests, and I tried out one of them. I calculated my score and I got a 23. I only got 60% correct on the reading test, 68% on the English test, 72.5% on the science test, and 73% correct on the math test.The problem was that I felt rushed, so are there any tips to working faster while answering correctly? Is that really bad? It sure seems so.
My goal is to boost my score about 9 to 10 points… I would really like to go to UC Berkeley (my dream school is Stanford but I don’t know how likely it is for me to get accepted there). How hard is it to boost the score that much? I do have more than a year to prepare and study for it.
Also, if I did better on the math and science tests than on the English and reading tests, does that mean I wouldn’t do as well on the SAT?
Please let me know, thank you!
