Both the ACT and SAT are standardized tests which students study and prepare for in order to score well and attend a university of their choosing. Even if it’s not their first, second, or third choice, odds are they will still have options if they have taken the time to prepare.
In the standard list of test preparation tips, there is one test preparation tip that is often overlooked and is actually rather simple. This tip requires a special type of student to perform it and can transform an ordinary student to an extraordinary one.
What is it? Teaching! By taking the time to understand the subject so deeply that the student can then relay it to another means that the student has truly mastered the material and is more than capable of handling the ACT/SAT. So the next time your student is wondering how to improve their test scores, have them sit down with a friend and study together. You just might be surprised with the results.
