Why take the plan test
Why take the PLAN Test?

  • Taking PLAN is a great way to prepare for the ACT. In fact, students who take PLAN tend to score higher on the ACT than students who do not take PLAN.

  • It covers the same subjects—English, mathematics, reading, and science—and provides an estimated ACT score.

  • PLAN points out academic strengths and areas where improvement is needed and lets students know if they're on track for college.

  • PLAN helps them find careers that match their interests and even helps connect them with colleges interested in them.

Why take the psat test
Why take the PSAT Test?

The PSAT/NMSQT measures:

  • Critical reading skills

  • Math problem-solving skills

  • Writing skills

  • The most common reasons for taking the PSAT/NMSQT are to:

  • Receive feedback on your strengths and weaknesses on skills necessary for college study. You can then focus your preparation on those areas that could most benefit from additional study or practice.

  • See how your performance on an admissions test might compare with that of others applying to college.

  • Enter the competition for scholarships from NMSC (grade 11).
