Night before the ACT? What should you do?

So, what to do the night before the test?  With a national test date tomorrow for the ACT, this has been running through my mind – especially since I am taking the test tomorrow too!

8 Reasons

Night Before:

  • Before you go to bed on the night before the exam, make sure to collect together anything that you will need for the exam — pencils, eraser, calculator, ID, and admissions ticket. Double-check the time of the exam and the location.

  • Set the alarm clock and then get a good night’s sleep before the exam.

Day of the Test:

  • Get to the exam in plenty of time.

  • Read something before you get to the test – a magazine, a book, the newspaper, etc.

  • Don’t talk to friends about the test just before going into the exam.

  • Sit in a location in the exam room where you will be distracted as little as possible.

  • As the papers are distributed, calm yourself down by closing your eyes and taking some slow deep breaths.

  • As you work on the exam, focus only on the exam, not on what other students are doing.

  • If you feel very anxious or even panicky in the test, take a few seconds time out and calm yourself down. Stretch your arms and legs and then relax them again. Do this a couple of times. Take a few slow deep breaths. Do some positive internal self-talk; say to yourself, “I will be OK; I can do this.” Then take your time and get back into the questions.

  • If the exam is more difficult than you anticipated, try to focus and just do your best at that point. It might be enough to get you through!

After the exam is over:

  • Go treat yourself!

Good luck to everyone taking the test tomorrow!

ACT/SAT SLAYER

I haven’t always been on a mission to help students SLAY the ACT and SAT. Before this, I was an Industrial Engineer turned high school math teacher, and it took a lot of inspiration & a truck-load of guts to get to where I am today.

I have worked with thousands of students over the past 14 years- of ALL ability levels.

It’s my passion and blessing to help students increase their confidence, get that goal score, and know that they have what it takes to ace the test.


I get it! As a mom of 4 sons, I truly understand that each child is different, and I work with each student to meet them where they're at and to support them to get to the next level!

I have been named Most Influential Educator seventeen times!

In addition, I have taught ACT/SAT prep for 15 years and have attended several ACT/SAT workshops.
