Tips for Taking the Admissions Exam

  • Budget your time. Study a little bit every day from now until the exam but set aside some larger blocks of time the week prior.
  • Go to the available review sessions and pay attention to hints that the proctor may give about the test. 
  • Eat before the exam. Having food in your stomach will give you energy and help you focus. Avoid heavy foods that make you groggy.
  • Don't try to pull an all-nighter or stay up too late. Get at least eight hours of sleep the night before the test.
  • Be a little early. Aim to show up in the exam room at least 15 minutes before the test starts so you can relax and not feel rushed.
  • The exam is on a Saturday - remember to set your alarm and have a backup alarm set as well. Ask someone reliable to give you a reminder.

"Mount Mercy has taught me some of the most important things in my life and I am so grateful for that. I know that incorporating the principles of a woman of Mercy has made me the best version of myself. I can only hope that in the future, I will continue to grow and teach others the valuable lessons that I was taught at Mount Mercy. While I have learned so many things here, the greatest thing by far that I have learned is that DNA does not always make a family, love makes a family and that is exactly what I have gained here, a second family."
