Hi all, my son is scheduled to take the ACT again this upcoming Saturday. He scored a 34 on his first ACT and at this point he’s really only taking another to try to super score.
He scored a 36 on English and a 9/10 on his essay. These and every other section were at the top end of his practice tests. Only exception was Math. On math his practices ranged from 33-36 and he posted a 33.
From a super score perspective, the only score he isn’t fully happy with is Math.
I have an extreme question and then a more realistic question:
Extreme: since Math is the only score with a realistic chance of an increase, is there any negative consequence of not answering any section but Math? Ie. could he be doing mind exercises and mediation right up until Math?
More realistic: He sees no point in taking English (36) or the essay (9/10). Can he blow these sections off?
I ask this not to shirk work. I ask because being intellectually on point for hours and hours is really frigging hard. The more he can focus on the one section where he underperformed, the better I think he’ll do.
All of this is purely based on Super scoring. Our list of schools all super score.
