Test are just that...tests. Just because you don't perform well on a test doesn't mean you don't read or write well, it indicates that you don't test well. It's important to know if you actually don't understand the material or if you just need to learn to be a better test-taker. One of the most important things for standardized testing is to read the question first, THEN read the section where you will find the answer. Good luck, test takers!
