It’s ACT Day!

The day is finally here. You’ve been preparing for months, worked your way through countless notebooks and #2 pencils, and taken practice test after practice test to get your score where you want it to be.


Today is ACT day!  


First of all, I urge you to take a moment to pat yourself on the back. No matter the outcome of the test, your hard work and dedication is something you should be proud of.


Undoubtedly, you have felt a lot of pressure during preparation time. The morning of the test is time to put those pressures aside, and to focus on getting yourself ready for the test with the following steps:


1- Have a healthy, filling breakfast. You may feel a little nervous and not hungry at the time, but a grumbling stomach is the last thing you want to be thinking about as you sit down to write! If you are finding it difficult to eat, begin with a piece of fruit like a banana. Bananas are an excellent source of potassium, which helps deliver oxygen to the brain and keep your mind sharp.

2- Run through a check list of the things you need to bring with you. Your test ticket, photo ID, approved calculator, sharp #2 pencils, and a good eraser are top of the list. Don’t forget your mask and water bottle!

3- Give yourself a little extra time to get to the testing center. A good idea is to check the traffic on the days leading up to the test so you have a rough idea of how long it will take for you to get there. It is nice to be about 10 – 15 minutes early, but not so early that you get restless waiting to begin.

4- Switch off that cellphone! Even better, don’t bring it to the testing center with you, if you can help it.

5- When you sit down the take the test, take a few deep breaths. You are ready, and you’re going to ace it
