Alex scored a 32 on the ACT twice but I encouraged him to take it again to see if he could improve on his score. Since he’s been working on college applications and scholarships, I think he saw the benefit an impressive ACT score could give him. So last month he went in for a third time.
Today he checked his score.
Nice. He scored a perfect 36 in science (interestingly, the only section on which I did not score a 36 back in 1989). He’s pretty stoked about it, and hopefully it’ll translate into easier admissions to colleges and some more scholarship money.
