Come to kick-off WiHi’s College Counseling Program and hear from national college experts about the search and application process!
The PSAT will be given to interested 10th and 11th graders on Wednesday, October 15 from 3 to 6 p.m. in the WIHI Cafeteria. Cost is $20 (check made out to "WIHI" with "PSAT" in the subject line). The PSAT is a pre-SAT test. Taking the PSAT also enters 11th-grade students into the National Merit Scholarship program.
WIHI students may sign up for the PSAT outside of Mr. Nemo's office.
Are you registered for an upcoming ACT test? Do you feel you may need additional preparation for this important exam?
Well, look no further! College Tutors in Ann Arbor is hosting a free ACT practice test for students attending high schools in the Ann Arbor area.
The practice ACT exam starts at 8:30 am on March 1st.
The practice test will take place at the College Tutors Ann Arbor Learning Center:
3907 Jackson Road
Ann Arbor, MI 48103
What should I bring?
You should treat this practice exam just as you would the real ACT exam. Therefore, you should bring sharpened number 2 pencils, a watch, a permitted calculator and snacks or drinks if needed during the break.
Why take a practice exam?
Since the ACT is one of the most important exams you will ever have to take, it is important to make sure you are 100% prepared to take the exam. TheACT is also a timed exam, unlike most exams you have experience taking. Taking the practice exam will give you an idea of how you should pace yourself throughout the exam. If that still doesn't convince you, the practice exam will at least give you a better idea of what material you should study for the ACT.
What if I can't make it?
If you can't make it to this practice test, there is another taking place on Saturday, April 5th.
Hurry! Spots are limited.
Make sure to register for this practice exam as soon as possible, since spots are limited. You will not want to miss out on this opportunity.
If you are interested in registering for the practice ACT exam, call (734) 761-8393 to register or stop into our learning center to reserve your spot.
