Rant: Importance of the ACT

Taylor Rogers, Staff Writer

The ACT test puts way too much pressure on students. It is not fair that college admission is based off of a timed standardized test. Some people do not do well on standardized test, and others panic when they are timed and not able to think through problems completely. Grades over four years should be weighed much more heavily than one pressurized test. Many people pay ridiculous amounts of money for a tutor, leaving high scores dependent on not only by academic but also economic means.
