  3. Start your preparation early. The journey to good ACT/SAT scores is a marathon, not a sprint. Make time in your weekly schedule for at least 1-2hrs of ACT/SAT work per week.
  4. Consider private tutoring: the most efficient way to earn ACT/SAT score improvement is by working with an expert private tutor. A-List has over 15 years of experience guiding students to increase their scores by hundreds of points.
  5. Plan your practice tests: a private tutor will schedule this for you but make sure to sit at least 2 or 3 full-timed practice tests before your first official exam. It is crucial you build up the necessary stamina to succeed on the actual day!
  6. Schedule multiple test sittings. No one gets the score they want on the first try! Make sure you register (early!) for at least two, preferably three, test sittings that s give you plenty of time to evaluate your scores before application deadlines.
