Tilghman students excel by topping 30 on ACT

The ACT is a standardized test that all juniors across the United States are required to take. There are four sections consisting of English, Mathematics, Reading, Scientific Reasoning, and an optional writing test. The four sections, excluding the optional writing, are scored using a scale ranging from 1-36.

The Tilghman Bell would like to commend students Milan Doan and Meg Hancock for making a perfect 36 in one of the sections of the ACT. Tilghman senior, Milan, scored a 36 on the English section. Meg, a Tilghman junior, scored a 36 on the Reading section.

When asked what worked best for them, Meg’s reading tip was, “Underline what stands out in the passages and be watchful of your time.” Milan’s best English tip was, “Try to understand the context of the passages and read over your answers to make sure they fit the sentence.”
