The ACT and SAT tests are college-entrance exams used by U.S. colleges to assess high school students’ general educational development and their ability to complete college-level work, as well as to determine admissions and award scholarships and grants.
The full-length practice-test sessions help students to gain experience and become better prepared for the actual test. The scores on these practice tests will only be shared with the student; they will not be sent to any educational institutions.
The SAT® test consists of three sections – Reading, Writing and Language, and Math. The practice test takes place from 10:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., including administration and breaks. Those taking the practice test are encouraged to bring at least two #2 pencils. Examinees may bring any 4-function, scientific, or graphing calculator, as long as it is not on the prohibited list shown in the SAT Calculator Policy. The schedule of SAT practice-test sessions is as follows:
- August 3– Cinco Ranch Branch Library, 2620 Commercial Center Blvd, Katy.
