Ever Wonder if You’re Smarter than the President?
So you, a rapper, a former US president, a WWE superstar, and the greatest shortstop of all-time walk into a bar. Who has the best ACT score?
The answer would probably surprise you. Bill Clinton, who famously remembered the name of almost every person he ever met, only scored a 22. John Cena, who recently said it takes him over an hour a day to manscape his entire body, got a perfect 36.
Why does this matter? During your junior and senior years, you’ll spend a considerable amount of time thinking/worrying about your standardized test scores. You’ll set goals for yourself, find out what scores you need for your favorite colleges, take practice tests, learn what a preposition is, and get up early on a couple Saturdays to take real tests. These are all great, productive things to do, and Span Test Prep is there to help you each step of the way, but we also want to make sure you keep everything in perspective. Your test score will not be the singular trait that defines you in life; in fact, it won’t even be the singular trait that defines you to colleges. Colleges want to get a sense of who you are and what type of addition you’d be to their communities, so your grades, sports, instruments, clubs, jobs, essays, and recommendations all play a role in their decisions.
You should definitely care about your ACT/SAT scores and work hard to reach your full potential. Buuutttt, if you’re having an off-day on a practice test or got your first score back and didn’t do quite as well as you wanted, this list should help:
