Although these tests were written primarily for UIL study, these practice packets are appropriate for TAPPS and practice meets since the topics for these competitions are the same as UIL. Please note, however, that the time allotted on TAPPS tests differs from UIL, and the point values on LitCrit tests vary. See your competition rules for details.
