Before taking the English Regents, make sure you’re taking care of yourself. It wouldn’t be good to feel sick on the day of the test. Try to get enough sleep in the days leading up to the exam and eat a good breakfast before going in to take the test. Wear comfortable clothes, but also clothing that helps you feel alert and ready to work.
Remember that like any other standardized test given in the United States, there are strict rules to ensure all test-takers are following protocols and that there’s no risk of cheating. Students will be required to fill out scantrons and write with #2 pencils. Bring as many pencils with you as possible, in case one breaks during the test. If possible, leave electronics at home, however, most schools will have a place for you to drop your phone during the exam. Make sure to shut off your electronics because those who have a phone go off during the test can be penalized.
