What is the TACHS?
The Test for Admission into Catholic High Schools, or TACHS, is the admissions test for students wishing to attend Catholic high schools in and around New York City.
How is the TACHS exam scored?
The TACHS exam score is a percentile rank between 1 (low) and 99 (high) where 50 is the average. A good score is considered to be 70-99.
Should I prep for the TACHS exam? And how much?
TACHS exams can be taken only once per student. As such, preparation, especially with practice tests, before the exam is very important.
Preparation times will of course vary from student to student, but to study the most efficiently it is recommended that students use test preparation books which have diagnostic test and test taking strategies. Diagnostic tests allow students to see their strengths and weaknesses so they can focus their study efforts and minimize required study time to pass the exam.
Peterson’s Master the Catholic High School Entrance Exams 2019 is a perfect resource for those looking to study for the TACHS or HSPT as thoroughly and efficiently as possible because it contains practice tests, a diagnostic test, and test taking strategies to help students of any level succeed on test day.
