Effective January 27, 2020
The PACT exams are a unique set of exams used only for individuals seeking admittance to an Educator Preparation Program in Texas.
IMPORTANT: Not all Educator Preparation Program require a PACT exam for admission. Please contact your prospective Educator Preparation Program to see if they require a PACT exam.
Prior to January 27, 2020
Before January 27, 2020 the PACT allowed individuals to take their TExES (the official educator certification exam) prior to admission into a Texas Educator Preparation Program.
Basically, prior to January 27, 2020, a test score from the PACT could count for program admission and teacher certification. After January 27, 2020 the PACT can only be used for program admission.
