strengthen your academic skills

If you think your skills aren't quite up to speed for college, don't give up. Take time to prepare yourself. There are many ways to get a college degree. You just have to take the path that's right for you. Follow these tips:

  • Use test score information to see where you need work. Score information from the ACT®, SAT, PLAN, PSAT can tell you what subjects you need help with and what you can do to raise your skills to the next level. Remember, a low score doesn't necessarily mean you're bad in a subject. It just means you haven't mastered the subject yet.
  • Work with a tutor to learn what you don't know yet.
  • Take a summer or night school class.
  • Check out study aids - books, videotapes, audiotapes and computer programs - at your school library, a public library, or a local bookstore.
  • Ask your counselor or a teacher about ways you can build your academic skills.
