One of the most important things you can do to improve your score on the ACT Science Test is learn how to effectively manage your time. And this is more complicated than it sounds: some passages are more or less complex, some passages have more or fewer questions; some students have time to answer every question without making careless errors, some students get their best score when they focus all their energy on only a portion of the test.
Basically, it’s more of an art than a science (pun intended. 🙂 )
Learning effective pacing requires both a strategic approach and practice. Check out the video below for your strategy–and then get practicing!
