The ACT is a standardized test that all high school students are required to take in order to graduate. There are four parts to it, and you can choose to take the writing portion if you want to.

The four sections you are required to take are Math, Science, English, and Reading. The highest score you can get is a 36 and the lowest is a 1.

The night before the test you can prepare by going over your notes, study guides, and/or ACT Prep book. You should go to bed early enough to get at least 8-9 hours of sleep, so your brain is well rested.

To make things easier in the morning you can go ahead and pick out what you are going to wear, and what you’re going to eat for breakfast.

The morning of the ACT you should wake up and eat a good breakfast. Foods like fruit, protein, and vegetables. Pack a small bag for water and snacks you can eat during your break.

Bring your own pencils, paper, and calculator incase they don’t have any. You should try to get to your testing area early so you have time to prepare.

There is an ACT test at Hillsboro High School on Tuesday, March 20th. You must get there on time at 7:05, if you are late you will not be able to test.

The administrators will probably hold a test later so you can make it up if you miss it. The test will take around 3 hours, and the writing portion isn’t included.

Keep in mind there will be plenty of other opportunities to take this test at other places, so don’t stress too much if you don’t get your desired score. Come prepared on Tuesday, and do the best you can!
