Lakeview High School and Natchitoches Central High School to Administer the ACT Test on March 9th
March 2, 2021
Lakeview High School and Natchitoches Central High School will participate in administering the ACT test on Tuesday, March 9th to their current 11th grade students and seniors who have not yet taken the test.
In order to comply with all national, state, and local Covid-19 guidelines, all Lakeview and NCHS students who are not testing will be virtual that day. This will enable the school to create socially distanced testing environments. All eligible students, both virtual and face to face, must report to their school campus on March 9th in order to take the test.
Students should get plenty of sleep the night before the test. Wear comfortable clothing and eat a healthy breakfast the day of the test. When getting started, take a few deep breaths to calm yourself. Keep a positive attitude. Listen carefully to instructions and ask questions if you hear something you don’t understand. Focus your attention entirely on your work.
Students should be in their testing class by 7:45 a.m. If you have questions, please contact your school administrator!
Answer Easy Questions First
- Answer the questions you’re sure you know the correct answer to first. If you’re faced with a challenging question for which you don’t know the correct answer, just make an educated guess. Try to eliminate as many incorrect answer choices as you can and then select the answer that makes the most sense. There is no point deduction for wrong answers – so any answer is always better than no answer at all.
Budget Your Time
- Do not spend too much time on any one question since there is a time limit for completing the test. It is best to limit yourself to 1 to 2 minutes for the harder questions and no more than 10 to 20 seconds on the easier questions.
Read Each Question Carefully
- Never assume you know what a question is asking until you’ve read it in its entirety.
Don't Change Your Answers
- Don’t change your answers unless you’re sure you made a mistake. More often than not your first answer will be the correct answer.
