The guidance counselors at Skutt Catholic encourage all juniors/seniors to take both the ACT and the SAT at least one time, and then, the student should repeat the test they prefer.
To register for the SAT or to learn more about the test, go to the College Board website.
To register for the ACT or to learn more about the test, go to the ACT website.
Here are some last minute tips for before and on ACT test day:
Be sure your calculator is permitted for use during the Math section; visit actstudent.org to find out if your calculator is allowed.
If you don’t have your ticket yet, sign in to your ACT Web account and print your ticket now. If you wait until test day, you could experience delays if there is heavy server traffic or if you have trouble logging in.
Check out the ID requirements on the Test Day Checklist at actstudent.org and make sure you bring your photo ID on test day.
Without both your printed ticket and a valid photo ID, you won’t be admitted to test.
If your cell phone goes off during the test or if you are caught using it at any time during testing – even during breaks – you will be dismissed and your test will not be scored.
Your answer document will not be scored if you give or receive assistance during the test. And if you suspect someone of cheating on the ACT, let us know. We’ll take it from there.
