Sophomores allowed option to take PLAN

By Michelle Nosratian

For the first time ever, sophomores were given the choice to take the PLAN, the ACT’s version of the PSAT, last Saturday.

An informational letter from the upper school deans was sent to parents with first quarter report cards giving students the option of taking the PLAN in addition to already having taken the PSAT.

“We asked all sophomores if they wanted to do it and about 120 decided they would,” Dean Canh Oxelson said.

The test is one hour and 55 minutes long with 145 questions and four sections: english, math, reading and science.
