Some NOOB ACT q's

<p>If I prep really hard for the SAT and score 2250+, how much do I need to prep (estimate) to score 35 on the ACT? What is equivalent to a 35 ACT on the SAT? </p>

<p>I am really noob. For the SAT, 2300 is a really solid score for Ivys. What would be the ACT equivalent to the chances a person with 2300 would have? 34? 35? 33? </p>

<p>Also, if I just take a diagnostic SAT, what score should I get to have a legit shot at 35? </p>

<p>Also, how hard is it to improve an ACT comp. score a couple points? (equivalent to how much improvement on the SAT?)?</p>

<p>Thanks!</p>

<p>a 35 on the ACT is equal to about a 2330 on the SAT</p>

<p>more like a 32-33</p>

<p>nope it is about a 2330, maybe 2320 or 2340 depending on school</p>

<p>i thought he asked what he should get on a diagnostic test, my bad. you usually go up 1or 2 points on test day. but yeah, aim for a 35. 34 at LEAST.</p>

<p>oh, i was just answering what SAT was equivalent to a 35 ACT</p>

<p>ok wait. for the diagnostic, what should I get if I also plan on prepping for a couple of weeks to get 35? Also, why do scores go up 1 to 2 pts. on test day? This never really happens with the SAT.</p>

<p>Yes it does, you usually go up 30-100 points on SAT test day (depending on how high you usually score). I had a friend who scored 1700 on his practice tests, and got a 1900 on test day. Another friend had an 1800, and broke 2000 on test day- without any prep. I went up 100 points as well, as did my brother.</p>

<p>wow, I don;t know if my score went up or not, gotta wait until May 20th to find out if it did.</p>

<p>So, after I write the June SAT, I will write an ACT diagnostic (can I find one online?). So, first I would look over the format of the test online or something to understand what to do and what the sections are all about. Then I'll take the test. </p>

<p>So, you say that if I score a 32-33, that a 35 is very possible in a few weeks of prep? Also, how hard is it to score that after scoring ~2200 on the SAT?</p>

<p>May 20th is killing me! I want to know how I did now >.< </p>

<p>Yeah, a few weeks of prep should be all you need. Shouldn't be very hard.</p>

<p>^So, wait, a 32 is what I'd need on a diag. test to be able to get to 35 in 2 weeks of really, really solid prep (like a ton of hours a day)? </p>

<p>And yea, I know I didn't do as well as I can on this May SAT, but with score choice I'm not that worried. Actually, I kind of feel ****ed at myself that I'm not stressed lol. I feel like I should be feeling some anxiety but I don't....odd since i'm a really motivated person.</p>

<p>And is ACT english easier than SAT? And how easy/hard is it to get 35 on the Science portion?</p>

<p>Do an ACT practice test to see how you'd do. Most do about the same in each test, but some people do dramatically better in one over the other.</p>

<p>does the ACT site have somewhere where I can download and print a practice test?</p>

<p>Internet</a> Archive Wayback Machine</p>

<p>There you go pal :D</p>

<p>how do the curves and stuff work on the ACT? How many can you get wrong in the sections to still get 35?</p>

<p>you can check them out on the test thing I just posted. like -1 for 35 math, -1 for science = 34/35, -3 reading = 35 and -3 english = 35? Something like that</p>

<p>what?! jeez, there are like 60 math q's! just 1 wrong is a 35! Ouch. </p>

<p>And are the reading and english sections easier/harder/the same as those of the SAT?</p>

<p>Hi guys...well how hard is the ACT for non-native english speakers?? is there anything ACT in other languages?? Thank you :)</p>

<p>ralec the site that you provided doesnt seem to work. anyways, thanks for the post</p>

<p>I got lower on test day. I suppose it depends on the person.</p>
