TIMING OF THE TEST
The TACt test has a 4-hour (240 minutes) time limit and should be taken in one sitting. The time is displayed within the test and we will have a time stamp on our end from when you started and ended the test. If you go over your time limit, your test will be invalid, and you will have to retest at a later date. Plan a time when you won’t be disturbed for that block of time.
TAKING YOUR TEST
Before taking your test, make sure you are in an environment where you will not be disturbed. Your answers are saved as you submit each one, not at the end of the test. This means you will not lose any work. Avoid using your browser back button as this will not work. Make sure you take your test on the same date as your registration.
