For some, this will be a baseline test; while for others it is their course final (exit) test. Tutorial students may also take a practice test under these nominal conditions.

Test Day Tips:

  • For optimal energy, eat a dinner complex carbohydrates (like pasta without a fatty sauce and a lean protein) as well as a breakfast of complex carbohydrates and a lean protein ( whole grain cereal or oatmeal, toast, fruit with egg or turkey). You’ll be at the test center for several hours and you’re less likely to get hungry.
  • Bring five No. 2 pencils – 2 dull and three sharp as well as a good eraser—a pencil is required for the multiple-choice questions and the essay. Mechanical pencils are not allowed because they may have the wrong type of lead or punch through the answer sheet. Pens are not allowed.
  • Bring a calculator with fresh batteries.
  • Bring snacks. You will get 2 short breaks. You can eat or drink any snacks you have brought with you during these breaks. A healthy snack will go a long way toward keeping you alert during the test.

If you cannot make this scheduled time, and haven’t already done so, please contact us so we can make “other” arrangements. The test is used as an indicator of a student’s strengths and weaknesses as well as progress and to give them reference for further study and test comparison.
