students 2017KENTUCKY (2/14/19) — Juniors in Kentucky public high schools will take the ACT on March 12. These tips from the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority may help students do better on the test.

• Most of the ACT is based on reading. The more you read, the better you’ll do.
• Take advantage of any free ACT prep courses offered by your school or by local colleges and libraries.
• Take practice tests online or buy practice tests for use at home.
• Familiarize yourself with the sections and directions.
• Get plenty of rest the night before, and eat a good breakfast that morning.
• Remember to take No. 2 pencils and a calculator if your school doesn’t provide them.
• Do the questions you can answer easily first, then come back to the harder questions, especially in the math portion.
• Guess if you have no idea what the answer should be. Guessing doesn’t hurt your score.
