Confused about SATs, ACTs, or PSATs? On Wednesday evening, June 1, Lynn Carnegie of local test prep company Carnegie Pollack will give a free presentation at Trackside Teen Center designed to help students and parents navigate the changing landscape of standardized testing (SAT, ACT, PSAT, SAT Subject Tests, and AP exams). This presentation is open to all Wilton students and parents in need of help with college entrance exams.

Both the SAT and the ACT have already undergone changes this year, so the landscape of college admissions testing is becoming increasingly complicated. The ACT’s Writing test underwent a major overhaul starting last fall. And now the SAT’s new curriculum and scoring were implemented in March to better mirror the Common Core standards.

Planning ahead can help alleviate the stress associated with the testing process. As the founding principal of Carnegie Pollack, Carnegie has been preparing Fairfield County students for standardized tests for more than 30 years. This free presentation will provide parents and students with information about the differences between the PSAT, SAT, and ACT, the various options to prepare for these tests, and how to avoid common pitfalls in the process, and Carnegie will help parents understand their options and devise plans. There will be a Q&A session following the presentation.

“There are so many questions parents don’t even know to ask about this process, especially with the changes to the SAT and ACT this year,” Carnegie says. “My presentations will give an overview of the testing options to help create a plan and make the whole process less daunting.”

The presentation will take place on Wednesday, June 1 at 7:30 p.m.. While this is a free event, registration is requested online.

Trackside Teen Center is located at 15 Station Rd.. For questions, email Amy Nassef or call 203.834.2888. To learn more about Carnegie Pollack test prep, visit their website.
