To demonstrate content proficiency for potential program admission, potential candidates should take the TExES content exam through the Pre-Admission Content Testing or PACT system prior to application. Follow the PACT Test Registration procedures (choose your TEA ID) and register to take the content exam for the target certificate. Passing the content exam early is the most important factor in determining a candidate's eligibility for admission and to seek employment as a teacher.

Please register to secure a test date, then complete test preparation prior to that date. You are limited to five test attempts, one initial attempt and four retakes, so you want to make sure that you are prepared before you take the exam.
