ST. PETERSBURG — Many students around the globe have faced the daunting task of mastering the skills needed to conquer the college entrance exams simply known as the SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) or ACT (American College Test). From solving a five step mathematical equation to perfecting the universally accepted English language, the test presents a degree of difficulty many dare to challenge.
Is it really possible to outsmart the test? A group of students will take the challenge this Saturday when they lace up their shoes, tighten up their belts and let their minds release a combustion of stored up knowledge and reasoning skills to defeat the newly released SAT/ACT practice exam.
“I’m looking forward to taking the new test,” said Taylor Hall, class of 2017. It really helps you to get ready for college when you can take a practice test and then take the real one. I’ll see how prepared I am.”
High Profile Motivational Services, Inc. has partnered with The Princeton Review to offer students an ACT/SAT Start-Up Practice Test, a practice assessment that features a mix of questions from both the SAT and the ACT. Students will receive a detailed score report that will give a side-by-side comparison of their projected test scores on the ACT and the SAT.
