Should My Child Take the April ACT?

Table of Contents

If your child is a junior, then they should be taking the ACT this year.  Even if they have done no prep at all, it is to their advantage to sign up for the April ACT.  You might ask with some skepticism and doubt, “What if they do poorly?  Won’t colleges see that score?”  The short answer is “no.”  Not only does the ACT allow you to pick and choose which test dates to send to colleges but the ACT also allows students to DELETE any unwanted ACT scores.

Thus, even if a college requests that students send all of their SAT/ACT scores, students can delete any ACT scores before senior year that do not help their academic profile.  Then students can with 100% honesty report all of their scores to colleges.  (Note: Some colleges superscore ACT results, so be careful not to delete any test dates on which a student scored their highest in a section.)

Additionally, the April ACT is one of three ACTs throughout the year that offers the “Test Information Release Service,” which gives students the test back that they took.  The February test, for instance, does not have this option, so students will only receive their scores, not the actual test, and never have the opportunity to see the questions they missed.

There is no downside to taking the ACT, only the upside of practice taking the real test and increasing the odds of achieving a higher score.

We were lucky enough to be referred to David at Summit Prep! My son enjoyed working with David as he felt that he really helped him prepare for the ACT. He explained concepts covered on the test as well as the test itself. My son felt confident taking the test and did so well that he only had to take it once!

David helped me improve my SAT from a 1480 to a 1570 over the course of about 2 months. Each session made me feel more and more confident.

Eva took on an almost impossible task and seriously worked a miracle! We found out we were moving, and our son had to take the ISEE exam asap. From his practice test to the exam, his scores went up exponentially. We give her 5 enthusiastic stars!

All three of my children have used Summit Prep for their test prep and, I believe, reached their full potential as a result of the outstanding guidance of David and Ryan. His ongoing support went above and beyond. Many thanks!
