What are the Act test taking tips?


You have to know how to navigate to succeed in the Act tests. Here are

some useful tips:

 

Familiarize yourself with the Instructions for each Subject Test


Don’t waste time reading the Subject Test instructions during the actual test.

By taking practice tests, you can learn the instructions before-hand.

 

Use your Test Booklet as Scratch Paper


You should scribble and annotate the work for Reading, Science and Math

problems, but don’t be so untidy that you can’t understand what you had

written if you have to return back to them. Distinctively mark next to any

questions you find difficult so you don’t miss it when you pass through it again

to answer it.

 

Answer Easy Questions before Hard Questions


There’s no point solving difficult question if doing so requires

several minutes so answer the easy and moderate questions first.

 

Don’t waste time on Hard Questions


If you’ve spent a significant amount of time on a problem and you are still

unsure about the answer, leave the question and return back to it when

you’ve answered the easy ones.

 

Avoid Carelessness


Avoid moving too quickly through the questions that you misinterpret a

question or miss an important piece of information so if you become confuse.

Slow down and reread the question, and decide if you should dive back in or

skip the question and go on to the next one.

 

Be Careful when answering your Answers


Even if you get the correct right answers to the ACT questions, but you fill in

all the wrong bubbles you will get no marks. To avoid mistakes, say the

question number and the answer in your head as you fill out the grid:

“Number 21, F. Number 22, C. Number 23, J.” 

 

Always Guess When you Don’t know the Answer


Even if you don’t know the answers guess rather than leaving an answer

blank. Your marks wont be deducted.

 

Use the entire ACT test time


Even if you finish the test early, use the entire given time. Go back and review

the questions, slowly “re-taking” them and checking for simple mistakes

because any ability student can make mistakes. 

 

Understand what the test makers prefer


Understand for example, ACT English test makers prefer concise answers,

prefer “economy of language.” 

 

Do some times practice to check in on your pacing


Develop a pacing strategy for each unique test, and practice so you are sure

you can complete your paper within the given time.
