Hi, I am 12 years old and my typing speed is 70 WPm, is this good enough?
That is an excellent speed for your age! Typically, the average typing speed of boys in a similar age range is 44 wpm, while the average typing speed for girls of the same age range is 37 wpm. Additionally, the average professional typist typically only types at speeds ranging from 65 to 75 wpm. Other professional positions, such as emergency dispatch services, look for typists with a typing speed of 80 to 95 wpm. Continuing to practice and perfect your ability to touch-type (remember to focus on accuracy too!) will help you in school as well as later in life when you are choosing a career, so even with your excellent typing speed, you can continue practicing to grow your typing skills!
