College Admissions Testing
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 CollegeBoard website.
To register for the ACT or to learn more about the test, go to the ACT website.
You want to do well. We want you to do well.
Here are some last minute tips for before and on ACT test day:
- Check your calculator.
Be sure your calculator is permitted for use during the Math section; visit actstudent.org to find out if your calculator is allowed.
- Make sure you have your ticket.
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.
- Make sure you have a valid photo ID.
Check out the ID requirements on the Test Day Checklist at actstudent.org and make sure you bring your photo ID on test day.
- Make sure to bring your printed ticket and valid photo ID to the test center.
Without both your printed ticket and a valid photo ID, you won’t be admitted to test.
- Don’t bring your cell phone into the test center.
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.
- Make sure your test counts (don’t cheat).
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.
