Need advice please for retesting

Recommended Posts

My ds took an Accuplacer test (community college entrance exam) 2 years ago and scored at college level reading, but scored at about 12th grade English for sentence structure. He wants to take a class that needs his scores to be higher, so he retook the test yesterday. His score dropped 2 grade levels down to about 9th-10th grade English!


Neither of us understands how that can happen - dropping 2 grade levels in English after 2 years. My only thought is that he was studying for the PSAT earlier this year and all those PSAT practice tests might have messed him up. Maybe? I don't know.


Anyway, he has to retake the test again next month to score at college level so the program he's in will pay for his fall classes. I'm not sure what to do. He has a month to prepare, but I don't even know where to start.

Any advice is appreciated.
