Practice makes perfect
When it comes to preparing for the ACT, there is no such thing as too much practice. With ACT Tutoring in London you’ll get regular practice on how to handle the various sections that make up the ACT. Whether practicing with us or on your own at home, familiarising yourself with the different sections will not only improve your test scores but will likely reduce your anxiety levels too.
When you sit down to take the ACT, it is important to have a strategy in place for how you spend those precious minutes on the different questions you’re presented with. At what point will you move on from a particularly challenging question? When you’re running out of time how will you prioritise the questions you have left? Make a plan and you won’t waste any time stressing about what to do.
A process of elimination
Aside from the optional writing test, the ACT is all about multiple choice with no penalty for selecting the wrong answer, it pays to guess even when you don’t know the answer. But to make sure your guess has the best chance of being correct, it is important to first rule out the obviously wrong answers. You’ll be surprised how far the process of elimination can get you.
With these tips and our help with ACT Tutoring in London, you’ll be one step closer to university life in the USA.
