What is a good test score?
It depends! What are your goals? Testing is just one component of the overall picture that colleges and employers are considering. Visit the specific programs that you are interested and find out their requirements for testing.
Keep practicing. There are many test preparation websites and courses that you can take to be better prepared for formal assessments. Please review the ACT Letter for more parent/student information regarding the ACT.
