Act Aspire Tips
Before the test:
•Get a good night's sleep
• Eat a healthy breakfast with protein and carbohydrates
During the test:
1. Pace Yourself
Students should give themselves eight minutes per passage in English and reading, about five minutes per science passage, and about one minute per math question.
2. Cherry Pick
Every question is worth exactly one point. If a question is perplexing or students don’t know what to do with it after 10 or 15 seconds, they should move on without remorse. They can always come back to tough questions if they have time.
3. Mark and Move
When students decide to move on to another question, they should mark their best guess before moving on. Students should not skip questions and leave them blank. As they go through the test, they should at least be marking their very best guess.
4. Never Leave an Answer Blank
Before time is up, every single question on the bubble sheet should have an answer, even if it’s a blind guess. There is no penalty for guessing on the ACT.
5. Trust Your Gut
Students sometimes make an accurate guess, but then go back and change their answer. Students should not second guess themselves. Their first guess is usually the best guess.
After the test:
• Don't forget to submit your answers
• Reward yourself for doing your best
• Forget about what you think you missed
