# ACT Strategies

## Skip Questions

If you are stuck on a question, just skip it. It's a waste of time staying one one question when you could be doing more

## Qaulity over Quantity

Don't focus on getting the whole test done, try and get the most questions correct.

## Guessing

If you ran out of time or didn't know an answer, just bubble the same letter for all of it. It will give you a chance of getting it correct than not answering at all
