Key Points To Remember

Besides the curiosity factor, here are a couple of key points to remember:

Don’t Judge A Book By A Cover – It’s easy today to undervalue how important school was on many celebrities. Too often the media shines its light on a celebrity’s popularity and success, without looking at the hard work and education that happened before fame arrived.

At a glance, it should be little surprise that Apple founder Bill Gates scored a 32, given his visionary leadership of that company. However, how many people would have guessed that hip-hop artist Waka Flocka Flame scored 1500? More importantly, who would have possibly guessed that his ACT score was five points higher than US President Barack Obama?

At one point, these people went through the same struggles as every high school student right now getting ready for the test. They faced the same nervousness, having to fit in study sessions, work on practice tests, etc…just like you.

Don’t Let The ACT Define You – In spite of the pressure that the ACT can present mentally, don’t let it define who you are during the preparation process. Remember that your life is not determined by one test score alone. Consider novelist William Faulkner; Faulkner scored an 18 on the ACT, not an incredibly impressive score overall. But consider his career – award-winning author, including the Nobel Prize for Literature.

Or consider Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe, who scored a 21 on her test. Not a terrible score, but it certainly didn’t hold her back from pursuing her dream and becoming a legend in the process. Your future success can indeed be helped by a high ACT score, but don’t put yourself under the manufactured pressure of thinking that the score alone guarantees it.
