test taking

Today, I'm taking the ACT for the fifth and final time. I'm nervous, but excited because I know that I'll be finished for good. What it is is what it is!

I have taken the ACT and so many standardized tests so often throughout high school. Last year, by the time my last AP test came, I was worn out. I know the exact bubbles of my name and the directions and on and on. But today is my last ACT date and I'm relieved.

I used to be very superstitious about what I wore to standardized tests (long story...one time I did well on a test in a particular sweatshirt, so I wore that sweatshirt every time), but now I'm just going for comfort. Those days, I honestly couldn't care less of what people thought of my fashion statements. But here's my typical wear during a good ol' standardized test.



Test Taking

Always going for a plain t-shirt, a pair of yoga pants, and tennis shoes. I have this theory that in a pair of comfy tennis shoes, you can rule the world or something like that. Same goes with comfy ballet flats. Still working on the actual theory, but know that it'll be poppin' up in academic journals somewhere soon. I'm all about throwing my hair up (I tend to get distracted and pick and split ends) and wearing my favorite digital Timex watch. Also, if you know me, you know that I always have my Lilly mug and Luna bar. I think my first-hour class gets a little frustrated with me still finishing my breakfast consisting of those two things in the morning...but oh well. I live with these staples in my diet and in my test-taking abilities.

What are your favorite test-taking must-haves? 
Are you superstitious about anything?

Meredith
