Hi mrsladybugus,

Your daughter is not alone. Since the California High School Exit Exam was implemented there have been students with good grades who have difficulty with one or both components of the test.

You should speak with her counselor immediately and find out where she is struggling. Many schools offer afterschool or Saturday school to help kids pass it. Find out also, how many more opportunities she will have to take the test.

For more information on the test, read here:

I have two friends who grade the written exams, and they say that students regularly go off-topic and don't use specific examples. One recommended the following site for a girl I tutored:
