NOVA Alexandria Testing Center

For the most up to date information and other helpful tips,
follow us on Twitter @AlexTestCtr

  • Effective Nov. 13th, you will be asked to leave cell phones and purses in your vehicles, lockers upstairs, or containers provided by the Testing Center.
  • We also encourage you not to bring large bags or bulky coats to the Testing Center as we still haven’t received our lockers.
  • The Testing Center becomes busier at the end of the semester. Even if you don’t see us with students, we may be processing their tests. Please be patient and we will call you up to the desk as soon as we can.

Try not to wait until the last day to test as this increases test anxiety. You want to get your test done so you can relax!

Test Taking Tips

1. Manage Your Time
Scan through the test quickly before starting. Answering the easy questions first can be a time saver and a confidence builder. Plus, it saves more time in the end for you to focus on the hard stuff.

2. I’m Stuck!
Those tricky problems can knock you off balance. Don’t get worried or frustrated. Reread the question to make sure you understand it, and then try to solve it the best way you know how. If you’re still stuck, circle it and move on. You can come back to it later. What if you have no idea about the answer? Review your options and make the best guess you can, but only if you don’t lose points for wrong answers.

3.  Multiple-Choice Questions

The process of elimination can help you choose the correct answer in a multiple-choice question. Start by crossing off the answers that couldn’t be right. Then spend your time focusing on the possible correct choices before selecting your answer.

4. Neatness Counts
If your 4s look like 9s, it could be a problem. Be sure that your writing is legible and that you erase your mistakes. For machine-scored tests, fill in the spaces carefully.

5. I’m Done!
Not so fast – when you complete the last item on the test, remember that you’re not done yet. First, check the clock and go back to review your answers, making sure that you didn’t make any careless mistakes (such as putting the right answer in the wrong place or skipping a question). Spend the last remaining minutes going over the hardest problems before you turn in your test.

 

Good LUCK!
