Only me Posted June 24, 2009 Share Posted June 24, 2009 My dd just took the ACT at the end of her junior year. This was her first time taking it. She got a 25 which I believe is a little above average. She did great on the reading (31) and english (27) but not so well on the science and math (21). I think her main problem in those areas as that she understands the math but doesn't do well when she is rushed. She has a 4.1 gpa on a 4 point scale (she has had a few honors classes that she got A's in and those count for more). She knows that she wants to be an elementary ed teacher. So far the only two colleges she has looked into don't require a very high score. One is a small private school and the other is a state college. Non of the colleges she is considering are selective. My dh thinks that the 25 is good enough and that she doesn't need to take the ACT test again. I'm on the fence. I'm wondering if she should take the ACT again next fall to see if she could raise her math and science score. She HATES taking these tests and gets very stressed out so I'm wondering whether or not to push her to take it and just let her keep her 25 score.
