Here are some test tips for the ACT and SAT.
Get plenty of sleep. The test is on a Saturday, so staying out late the night before is not advised. Also, getting plenty of rest on the days leading up to the test can help if you normally count on sleeping longer on Saturdays.
Eat breakfast. Your brain works far better when fueled than on an empty stomach. Even if you have to eat a quick snack while walking out the door or once you arrive in the morning,
Know how to get to your testing location. Consider driving to your location in advance so you don’t get lost and know exactly how long your travel time will be.
Don’t forget anything. You will need to bring a form of identification as well as pencils and a registration ticket. Extra items include a calculator and snack. If you have trouble remembering things in the morning, leave them in you car the night before so you don’t forget them.
Take a watch with you. Keeping track of time is important on these exams and phones are not allowed. Having a watch allows you to pace yourself properly without getting into trouble.
