The ACT is a test that many high school students dread, and for good reason: it can determine the college you attend.

Many students, ranging from seniors to freshmen took the ACT in December, and their “takes” on the test are all…”unique,” to say the least.

I hit the hallways and asked students about their test-taking experience.

Bryce Stanfill, Senior

I: “So Bryce, was the ACT good for you?”

B: “Oh, heck no! This test was brutal, with a capital B!”

I: “How so?”

B: “Well, let’s start with the Science test. Holy macaroni! It’s almost like I was taking a Spanish test!”

I: “Do you speak Spanish?”

B: “No!”

I: “So, you’re saying that the ACT was hard for you?”

B: “YES!”


McKayla Dotson, Senior

I: “So, was this ACT difficult for you or was it easy?”

M: “I mean, it wasn’t easy, but it wasn’t hard.”

I: “Are you happy with your test results?”

M: “Yes, but I wish I could have done better.”

Karly McAdoo, Junior

I: “How did you do on the December ACT?”

K: “I slayed it Math but Reading killed me.”

I: “Why is that?”

K: “The questions in Reading where really hard. It was almost like I was taking a test in old English.”

Lynsie McMullen, Senior

I: “How did you do?”

L: “I think I did well…”

I: “Like, on a scale from 1-10, 10 being, ‘I am literally the Queen,’ and 1 being, ‘I am dumber than my dog,’ what would you rate your performance as?”

L: “A 7!”
