ACT changes how the test is administered to students with extended time accommodation.
Just like a runner will run many practice marathons before their actual marathon or a musical will do many dress rehearsals, going beyond the homework and sessions to take full length practice tests before the actual test is the only way to determine what is working and what is not. Practice tests provide insight into time management, fatigue, point cost factor, and other test-taking tendencies.
SAT, ACT test day checklist is created to make sure our students are ready to battle the tests. These are difficult tests, not only for what is on them but also for how long they are. From start to finish, students will end up spending close to 5hours at their test center. To stay mentally and physically focused for such a long day does require extra attention. Hence, what you do on the final day before the test and on the test day itself is extremely important, so please print out and read through the practical “checklist” below.

Ideally speaking, letters of recommendation provide a first-hand account of who the student is, their conduct in an educational setting, enriching it with anecdotes etc.
