Junior Prabesh Adhikari’s main focus recently shifted to preparing for the ACT.

He desires a college with more strict admission requirements than the average school, giving him a motive to maximize the potential score. He said, “I’m hoping for a 32 or above because it’s near the cutoff range for most schools.”

Outside of his challenging classes during the high school day, Adhikari studies hard for the ACT. He said, “I’m putting in about two hours a week, I would say, and I’m preparing using a prep book that I bought online. It’s a Princeton prep book.”

Taking three Advanced Placement classes, he uses the more difficult material to build on his push towards his ACT goal. He said, “The AP classes require you to think at a higher level and definitely motivates you to work harder because of the rigor.”

Adhikari praises the curriculum offered by the school, as he said, “Mayfield pushes you to work at your best and the courses are very rigorous at this school, I would say.”

He believes the ACT signifies intelligence as it is cumulative. He said, “It’s like everything we’ve done in our school careers so far and I think it should be that way because it can test your knowledge on everything. You should have a vast knowledge of every subject.”

He said he is not too worried about the test, but Adhikari believes he could have benefited more inside of school compared to all the work he puts in on his own time. He said, “I think they could have provided us with some practice tests that are free because they do provide one for the SAT, but not the ACT.”

When the preparation is finished, Adhikari plans to put his knowledge to the test and take the ACT on April 13, hoping to eventually use the score to achieve acceptance into the Ohio State University.
