About two weeks before the ACT, students participate in a cram session to help with the ACT.
For some people making the decision to participate in the cram session for the ACT was a very easy decision. Most people did it to better prepare for the test and to get an overall better score.
“I decided to take the ACT cram session because I felt like it would improve my overall score,” junior, Khalil Mc Ewan said.
Some people, while at the session, felt it did not live up to the expectations that were set. Others however, felt it was more than what was expected because it was very informative about a specific topic that someone might want to know about.
“Yes, the cram was absolutely delightful, the tutor went over different strategies on how to approach the different subjects,” Mc Ewan said.
For some people, the cram session was very helpful when learning about specific tips or strategies. However, for others those strategies might not have been very helpful because everybody learns differently.
“Yes, it was helpful because it was very informative and the tutor helped me with my timing,” Mc Ewan said.
After taking the cram session friends might ask whether or not the session was worth it or not. Some people would recommend it while others would not.
“Yes, I would recommend it because I think it’s a wonderful opportunity if you are struggling with the ACT,” Mc Ewan said.
