The PreACT will be offered to 10th grade CB West students on Saturday, March 26th, 2022. This exam will be taken in-person at CB West high school. There are no alternative exam dates, and registration is only open to West students.
College bound 10th grade students are encouraged to take the PreACT to gain exposure to the ACT, an exam many colleges use when making admissions decisions. If students take both the PreACT and PSAT during 10th grade, they are able to focus exclusively on their preference during 11th grade (SAT or ACT). For details about the PreACT, you can view this overview sheet.
Registration will be open on the MyPaymentsPlus (MPP) website (https://www.mypaymentsplus.com/) from Monday, January 31st through Monday, February 21st. Registrations are being taken prior to the ordering deadline so that all who register will get a seat; however, exam seats may not be available after registration closes.
Please take note of the following registration tips:
- If this is the first time you are using MPP for any of your students, then you'll need to create a new account.
- If you created an account for use with an older sibling, then you’ll need to add the new student to your already existing account.
- You will need your student's school ID to create a new MPP account, or to add a new student to an existing account.
- There is a “forget your username or password” button if needed, but you should not create a new account if your forget your login information.
- The "PreACT at West" will only appear as an activity you can register for after an 10th grade West student is added to your MPP account.
If your student plans on using accommodations associated with an IEP, you must email Mike Curtis (email@example.com) after completing registration.
Important Notes for all college extrance exams:
1. Students will need to create their own accounts for both SAT (through www.collegeboard.org) and/or the ACT (through www.act.org). Students must save their login information (username and password) for these accounts. No one at CB West will have access to these student accounts, and students will need to access these accounts frequently in order to register for future tests, check scores, and send scores to colleges.
2. Students should use a personal email account (Gmail, etc.), and NOT their CBSD school email account when registering for tests. You may need access to these accounts after you graduate, when your CB email will be deactivated. You will get important information and notifications about your tests sent to this email address, so it should be one that you check frequently. This should not be a parent email address.
3. Students must enter the CB West CEEB Code: 391045 during online registration for the SAT and ACT in order to have their scores sent to CB West.SAT 2021-22SAT registration is handled through the College Board website (not by CB West).For 2021-22 SAT exam dates and registration information, click HERE.
