Took the ACT years ago. I had the flu and went in on two hours of sleep, no studying. I slept the last half because I was finished. I scored a 27 on it, but I wanted at least a 32. Ticked me off so I never retook it... ended up not going to college except for a few classes at a community college.

I am now a full time student, though, and on my way.

Once you hit 21, your scores won't mean squat to a college, so go straight in after high school.

Don't omit. In the PSAT, the answers can easily be crossed out down to 2. A 50% change + an educated guess is better than omitting. BTW, I got 195 .

PSAT doesnt mean anything, wouldnt fret over it.

SAT is bull as well, I went in without studying, did fine and dandy. Just wish I didnt waste 4 hours of my life looking at a piece of paper with bubbles.
