Time for your Catholic high school entrance exam? If you’re wondering what to take with you to the Catholic high school entrance exam, have a look at this list, which also shows what not to take!

  • Bring the following items with you to your entrance exam:

    Your registration confirmation: You need your registration receipt to prove you’ve paid for your test and are authorized to take it.

    An ID: Take in some documentation to prove that you are in fact you. Acceptable forms of ID include school identification cards and library cards.

    #2 pencils: Make sure you have plenty of sharpened #2 pencils on hand. They should have new, clean erasers too so you don’t leave extra marks on your answer sheet.

  • Whatever you do, leave these items at home:

    Cellphones, calculators, MP3 players, watches that contain calculators, and all other electronic devices: You can’t have access to any outside information while taking the exam, so don’t even bother trying to sneak in tools that can connect you with the outside world.

    Scratch paper and books: You aren’t allowed to take in paper of any kind. However, you can (and should) write in your test booklet.

    Highlighters, pens, and protractors: The only writing utensils permitted during the exam are #2 pencils.
