Which is right for you? The SAT or the ACT?
Most colleges accept either the SAT or the ACT. Find out which is best for you by taking a practice test that features a mix of questions from both the SAT and ACT.
Princeton Review will administer the test at Wesley Chapel High’s cafeteria from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sept. 29. The cost is $20 per student.
Preregistration is preferred, but walk-ins are welcome. Please arrive by 8:45 a.m. with a calculator and No. 2 pencils.
Test-takers will receive a detailed score report providing a side-by-side comparison of your projected test scores. A follow-up session is from 1 p.m. to 1:55 p.m. on Oct. 18 in the school media center to discuss the strengths and weaknesses on your score report, and to share basic test-taking techniques to raise scores on both the SAT and ACT.
