    Re: Which is correct

    Both sentences are correct, but not necessarily interchangeable.

    We will have the test, to me means that a teacher is telling the class about the test.

    We will take the test, to me means that there is a group of students who are talking about a test. Example: "We will take the test, even though we really don't want to."


    I am not a teacher.
