Representatives from the Kaplan Test Prep and Admissions will conduct a free practice ACT® test at Fort Bend County Libraries’ University Branch Library, on Saturday, November 10, from 10:00 am to 1:30 pm, in the Large Meeting Room of the library, located at 14010 University Blvd in Sugar Land, on the UH campus.
A follow-up strategy session will take place on Saturday, November 17, from 10:00 am to 12:00 noon, in the Large Meeting Room of the library.
Students will take the practice test during the first session, and will review their scores and learn strategy tips to increase their future scores at the second session. The test takes just over 3 hours, including administration instructions and breaks. Actual testing time is 2 hours and 55 minutes. Students are encouraged to bring #2 pencils; calculators are allowed as long as they are not TI-89s.
Used by U.S. colleges to determine admissions and to award scholarships and grants, the ACT® test assesses high school students’ general educational development and their ability to complete college-level work. The multiple-choice test covers five skill areas: English, mathematics, reading, science, and writing.
The sessions are free, but seating is limited and reservations are required.
