To pass the TX Pre-Admission Content Test (PACT) test, you must first understand what is on the exam and what you will be expected to know. The best way is to review the 240 Tutoring test breakdown materials and practice questions. Once you identify areas of weakness, you can begin targeting those areas with instructional content and practice questions.
Break policies can vary between exams. In order to take a break you must leave the testing room. Raise your hand to indicate that you want to take a break. You will need to show identification to reenter the testing room. You can learn more about the break policy here.
When you get to the testing site, expect to have your identification checked, your photo taken, your palm scanned, your eyeglasses checked, and to place your belongings in a secure storage space. You will be given an erasable notepad and pen. Before starting the test, you’ll have to complete a short tutorial and sign an agreement.
The TX PACT exams can be used to gain admission into an alternative certificate program or EPP. You may also have to pass the PACT if you are on the intensive pre-service route or a part of a charter that calls for you to pass the PACT in order to demonstrate content mastery in your field.

The main difference between the PACT exams and the TExES exams is the TX PACT exams contain questions that only assess subject-matter knowledge, while the TExES exams have questions assessing both subject-matter knowledge and pedagogical-content knowledge.
