Saturday’s ACT exam rescheduled in storm areas
Scores of testing centers where thousands of students were planning to take the ACT college admissions exam tomorrow have closed because of the massive storm marching up the East Coast.
The website has a long list of sites that have been closed and will post the new date when it becomes available.
Those students who have a conflict on the new date can take the test on a future ACT test date, the next regularly scheduled one set for April 10, with a registration deadline of March 5. Following that date is the June 12th administration, with a May 7 registration deadline.
You can call ACT registration at 319 337 1270 or log onto your student Web account and click on “make changes to your registration.”
Some students are likely to look at this as a reprieve, though this is more likely to be looked upon as an annoyance by many students who have been doing test preparation for this particular date.
The SAT college admissions test was not being given tomorrow; its schedule is different from the ACT.
