KaplanT SAT Practice Test

Saturday, August 13, 2016 at 12:30 PM -- 95th Street Library
Please enroll with Kaplan directly here: kaplan.formstack.com/forms/new_sat_95th_street
A practice test is crucial to ward off those test-day jitters. Kaplan will provide a proctored SAT practice test to give students realistic exposure to the newly redesigned SAT exam (first administration being March 5, 2016). The state of Illinois has selected the SAT as the college admissions test to be given to public school juniors, so this will help students get a jump-start on the change. Individuals should bring No. 2 pencils, an approved calculator and a healthy snack. The exam will begin promptly at the scheduled time, and no one will be admitted once the exam has started. This program is presented in partnership with Kaplan. *Program requires advanced registration and may be cancelled if enrollment does not reach 25 participants. Please enroll with Kaplan directly here: kaplan.formstack.com/forms/new_sat_95th_street
