Just like Christmas, test taking season comes every year. Granted, kids probably look forward to one more than the other. If you have a high school junior or senior who plans to continue their education beyond high school, ACT testing is somewhere in their future. The score your child earns on the ACT can make the difference between what school they attend to the amount of scholarship money they are offered. UT Martin is offering high school juniors and seniors ACT prep workshops on its satellite campus in Jackson. The workshops are geared towards helping them prepare for taking the ACT. Students may attend the one-day workshop that will cover English, reading and math to help them prepare for the exam.
If your student has already taken the ACT, they can still benefit from the workshop. Students are able to take the ACT exam more than once and may choose which score in each subject they want to use when applying for scholarships and college admission (see other benefits of taking the ACT). Attending the workshop could lead to your child scoring higher on the exam.
Although calculator use is not necessary, if your child wants to use one, it must be an approved ACT calculator.
The ACT test will be offered again on Saturday, February 11 (registration deadline Friday, January 13, 2017), April 8 (registration deadline Friday, March 3) and June 10 (registration deadline Friday, May 5) in 2017. Local test centers are Lane College for April 8 and Jackson Christian School, Union University and University of Memphis at Lambuth for all of the dates. See more test locations.
