• Practice Test Opportunities at Drake

     
    The College & Career Center schedules several dates each year whereby sophomores, juniors, and seniors can take full-length practice ACTs and/or SATs at Drake.  It is recommended that students try a practice ACT and a practice SAT at some point during their sophomore or junior year in order to decide which test they prefer. These practice tests, proctored by local test prep companies, offer students the opportunity to become familiar with the format, length and types of questions asked on the "official" ACT and SAT tests. 
     
    There is a requested donation of $15.00 for each practice test and 100% of the proceeds will be used to support Drake students and future programs. No student will be turned away if this donation creates a financial hardship.
     
    Please note that these practice tests are not the same as the PSAT (administered by College Board).  Taking the PSAT automatically qualifies juniors for the National Merit Scholarship, National Hispanic Recognition Program, and other scholarships.  Click here to see Drake's complete Practice Testing Schedule which details the differences between all practice testing opportunities offered on campus.
