How to Improve Your ACT English Score

Published on Tuesday, January 24th, 2017 by

By attending any of our ACT Boot Camps, workshops, or classes, you’ll receive many tips, tricks, and techniques that help you successfully prepare for and take the ACT. We’ve seen those students who come to us perform better and score higher in all four subjects on the ACT.

That is why we do what we do.

In today’s post, we’ll share with you some valuable tips on how to improve your ACT English score. These tips work if you practice them. Not only will your ACT English score improve but also your composite score on the ACT.

Take several practice tests

The best way to prepare for the ACT English test is to take as many practice tests as you can. Practicing with any test that is as close as possible to the real ACT will help you get a feel for the English test and the ACT overall.

We recommend taking timed English section tests as well as full ACT practice tests. This will allow you to prepare for every section of the ACT adequately, establish good pacing, and help you become comfortable with how the ACT is structured.

Ask for help

The ACT is a difficult test. It is completely acceptable to ask for help in the areas where you are struggling. That is why MasteryPrep exists. We help students through Boot Camps, tutoring [link], and classroom material (as well as our blog).
You also have several resources close by: seek out tutors, friends, teachers, even family members who can help you with the specific ACT subjects that are giving you trouble.

Pay attention to patterns in the questions

ACT English practice tests use similar questions and concepts to those on the actual test. Use this to your advantage: look for patterns in the way questions are worded or in what is tested. The more familiar you become with the patterns, question types, and frequently tested concepts on the practice tests, the more easily and quickly you will be able to recognize them on the actual ACT.
