i hate the act!!
today i just took the act. i am in seventh grade in middle school. all of it seemed like foreign language to me!!! i thought it would be easier but it wasnt .. o well i will probably make like a 16 b/c i guessed mostly half of them(since the act does not penalize wrong answers!!) o well i am mad b/c some of my friends made like 23's.. o well

Turner13 February 10th, 2007 02:02 PM

no it wasnt a practice. it was like some duke tip or something like that. it wont count as much as it would in highschool but i no it wasnt for practice ..

Turner13 February 10th, 2007 03:48 PM

Ohh yeah, I did that Duke thing in 7th grade too. It doesn't count towards college or even high school at all. If you score high enough (I'm not sure about the ACT, but on the SAT if you got 1200 or above) then you were invited to a recognition ceremony. It really doesn't do a thing for your transcript, but schools and colleges will send promotional material (Boarding schools mostly and colleges like Duke, Vanderbilt, A&M,etc). It's too bad you didn't score as high as your friends, but this was an optional test. I know that the math section is almost impossible, but you'll do much better once you've actually learned it!

Turner13 February 10th, 2007 03:52 PM

yeah the math mas impossible i guessed 3/4 of that part of the test and the scince was really hard to

jersey_girl_at_heart February 10th, 2007 04:24 PM

when i was in middle school they made certain people take the SATS! it was crazy

stfu_mauraaa February 10th, 2007 04:32 PM

jucii 2swT February 10th, 2007 04:34 PM

lol no sats or any test like that

im kinda a big deal February 10th, 2007 04:47 PM

i hated the acts. the science part was so retarded. i like the sats so much better. thank god im done with those tests.

Turner13 February 10th, 2007 04:54 PM

yeah i just hated the whole test..hmmm. maybe ill just move to canada till i graduate ???

jucii 2swT February 10th, 2007 05:19 PM

lol you can, but you'll have to do university here. the only time when we canadians have to take those tests is when we know for sure we'll be going to the states for school.

Turner13 February 10th, 2007 08:40 PM

are the colleges/universitys in canada good??

NYorkbabyy08 February 10th, 2007 08:45 PM

the act's have science? i didnt kno that. haha that sucks.

Turner13 February 10th, 2007 08:48 PM

yeah it does !! it really was just to test u if u could read and examine charts. and the charts were so hard!!! i hated it so much! and plus during the the break i somehow chop of the top of my skin on my thumb and that made it worst. well what was yalls scores on the act/sat??

jucii 2swT February 10th, 2007 08:49 PM

college is a two year program for most... (we graduate highschool in grade 11) and then after that you go to University. theres a famous one here in montreal.. Mcgill University.. losta US schools recognize it.

Turner13 February 10th, 2007 08:52 PM

jucii 2swT February 10th, 2007 08:55 PM

Turner13 February 10th, 2007 08:57 PM

jucii 2swT February 10th, 2007 09:01 PM

Turner13 February 10th, 2007 09:15 PM

jucii 2swT February 10th, 2007 09:42 PM

Djcarolina February 10th, 2007 10:15 PM

Its called the Duke TIP Scholar Program and allows 7th grade students to take the SAT/ACT. Personally i think its useless, i scored a 1387 on the old grading scale and it didnt do shi* for me.

dsoren February 10th, 2007 11:51 PM

Yeah, the Duke TIP is just a waste of like half of a Saturday.

Djcarolina February 11th, 2007 12:00 AM

YUPP! Except we got pizza on the monday following the recieving of our results! So that was cool but i had to give up a gig for that saturday! grr lol but in 7th grade it wasnt too much of a big deal anyway.

dsoren February 11th, 2007 12:02 AM

I just didn't really care when I took it, so I just like guessed 70% of the test lol.
