Advantage Testing LSAT Q&A

Should I retake certain sections of the ACT?

When section retesting becomes available in 2021, you should plan to retake certain sections of the ACT. In most circumstances, we recommend that students retake the ACT (see our college admissions timeline for more details). In particular, with ACT’s new retesting option, we recommend that students retake the sections on which they feel they need to improve. Retesting limited sections will allow you to prepare intensively for those sections. 

Keep in mind that the ACT will always include your highest composite ACT score from a single administration in your score reports, even superscore reports; some schools may choose not to use superscores and instead consider your top ACT score from a single sitting. Verify the individual policies of each school to which you intend to apply as you plan your testing and retesting strategy.
