National ACT testing weekend to be rescheduled in area

ST. LOUIS - Thousands of students in the bi-state are on pins and needles.

Saturday morning's snow storm forced more than 50 local American College Testing (ACT) test centers were forced to cancel National ACT Test Weekend.

NewsChannel 5 got a hold of the ACT folks to find out what you need to know if you were affected. The good news: If your test site cancelled on you, you can just sit tight for the time being. You don't have to do anything right now.

ACT will contact affected students and notify them of the new test date and other important information.

For those of you not familiar with the ACT, it's the exam high school students need to take so they can apply to colleges and universities, and for scholarships.

Weather has forced the ACT to be cancelled in various parts of the country before, but it's still unsettling for students and the company that administers the test.

"It certainly is anxiety-provoking to some degree," said Ed Colby, director of communications for ACT. "Obviously there's a lot of logistics that goes into rescheduling so many test centers. It's always a challenge but it's also something we're ready to do whenever we have a national test date."
