There is a lot of pressure that one number, an ACT score, can determine the college you are accepted to or the possible scholarships you can receive to help you get there. Students spend 12 years in school trying to maintain a high GPA. A student's grades throughout his/her schooling years can be much higher than an ACT score.
Taking the classes to prepare beforehand, or even paying a tutor to get a little extra one-on-one help cannot really assure how test scores are going to turn out. It seems as if students have worked their whole lives to achieve success later in life, but if this one test doesn't meet certain standards, then their chances of that become slim to none.
