This Saturday Putnam County High School students get one last chance to prepare for the September 22nd ACT.
Students need to register before 5:00 PM Friday to be able to participate at Cookeville High School. Counselor Judy Hadlock said being prepared for all subjects is pivotal in a student’s education chances.
“This ACT score can determine whether or not they will get admitted into the college that they want to go to,” Hadlock said. “The ACT score can also transfer into actual scholarship dollars if they can make a score that’s of a certain range.”
Hadlock said all students need to bring is a pencil and calculator. Students will be broken up into groups focusing on reading, English, science and math.
“We’re going to be talking about timing, because this is a timed test,” Hadlock said. “It’s a lot about interpreting data, so when students come in and they see these questions when they’re taking the test and they think, ‘oh dear I didn’t have an exact geology course,’ they know how to interpret data in a graph.”
The registration went out in an email to Cookeville High School students. Another ACT prep course is planned for the week prior to the December 12th ACT.
