Why Practice Tests Are Important

A diagnostic test is a practice exam for the SAT or ACT that provides you with a score but doesn't count toward your official record. It's designed to measure your current abilities in various test sections. It shows you where you stand, highlighting both strengths and weaknesses. This info helps you smartly allocate your study time and resources, whether you're going at it solo or looking into tutoring. It's all about strategizing from day one—no guesswork, just focused prep.

Analyzing the Results

So you've taken the ACT/SAT practice test—great first move. But what do those numbers really mean? Understanding your score is the key to unlocking your full potential and crushing the actual exam.

Break it down

Your practice test score isn't just a single number; it's broken down into different sections like English, Math, Reading, and Science for the ACT or Reading/Writing and Math for the SAT. Pay attention to each section's score to understand your strengths and weaknesses.


Compare your scores to the average and to the scores required by the colleges you're targeting. This will give you a clear goal. But remember, these are more than just numbers—they're a roadmap. Your percentile rank is a great way to gauge how you stack up against other test-takers. If you're in the 70th percentile, you scored higher than 70% of students. The higher your percentile, the more competitive your score.

Beyond the Score

Look for patterns in your wrong answers. Did you make consistent errors in a specific topic? Did time pressure make you rush, affecting your accuracy? This level of analysis can offer invaluable insights.
