So, junior year, we all know what that means: ACT testing, and the hardest year of high school. Well isn’t that fun? But how does this really help you? Does this really tell us what we are like and our capabilities? NO. IT DOESN’T. There are so many more factors that come into play when deciding to let us into your college. There is character, intellect, grades, how hard you study, and outside of school activities. All these things should be taken into account on an ACT test if it really were to be accurate. For example, what if someone had no morals and was really rude and hurt people? Would you let them into your school if you knew? Also how much time you put into school, I think, is important. If your whole life is about school and you spend time study and practicing new skills then you should be allowed in.
Now if you somehow got really good grades but your ACT stinks, that isn’t fair to that person. I mean they don’t really grade you; they grade your critical thinking skills.By the way, most of us have really good thinking skills except that I believe that ACT doesn’t find it out the correct way. But according to this website ACT they say it really does test your knowledge, which it does.
But there is a flaw, we might not have learned some of the things that are on their, and to the fact that this is a year before we get into college. And also according to that website the ACT is testing us if we are ready A YEAR BEFORE WE GO INTO COLLEGE.
The ACT does nothing for us, but actually hurt most of us. Who agrees with me?
