How Do You Pass the ACCUPLACER?

Most colleges use a placement exam—as a universal measure to ensure students are placed in the correct class. Although you can’t technically pass or fail an ACCUPLACER exam, your score will determine which level of math or English course you place into. If you are taking the ACCUPLACER as an admissions exam, you must get a certain minimum score to enroll in your desired program. This minimum score will vary from institution to institution.

Why Prepare for the ACCUPLACER?

Why Should I Prepare for the ACCUPLACER?

Without good preparation for the ACCUPLACER exam, you may find yourself in a class that is below your skill level and which costs you extra to take. Often, the lower level courses cover material you will have already learned in high school. Thus, preparation is key to avoiding remedial courses and to saving time and money.

For enrollment in special programs, you may need a particular score on the ACCUPLACER. Preparation will help you excel and ensure your spot in your chosen program.
