1. Registration & Fees
Grade 10 and grade 11 students must register for the 2018 PSAT/NMSQT exam between September 10 and October 3, 2018 (midnight EST). No late registration is possible. The exam will be administered at Bergen County Academies on Wednesday, October 10, during school hours. The cost for each exam is $17.00
Fee reductions are available for 11th grade students qualifying for Free-and-Reduced Lunch programs. Please contact Ms. Redlitz to review your eligibility and to receive a fee reduction code to apply towards the fee cost when completing the online registration form.
2. Why take the PSAT/NMSQT exam?
Students are encouraged to take the PSAT for a variety of reasons: 1) it gives the most up-to-date picture of where you are likely to score on the actual SAT. This will assist you in determining where you wish to spend your time and effort in preparing for the SAT exam. 2) As a junior, you are entered as a part of the National Merit Scholar Qualifying Test (NMSQT), a competition that awards some top scoring students across the nation with scholarships. 3) Another chance at a practice exam is always a good idea. This will help you to get a feel for the actual exam, which helps to reduce testing anxiety.
3. When are scores released?
PSAT results are usually sent to schools in late December and then are released to students via College Board’s online system soon after.
4. Can I cancel my exam and receive a refund?
You may only cancel your registration if you have an extenuating circumstance. In this event, please contact Ms. Redlitz for permission (firstname.lastname@example.org) and then email email@example.com before midnight, October 3, 2018. Include in the email your name and the name of your school.
5. What if I miss the exam?
If you miss the exam offered by BCA on October 10, you can contact College Board to get a list of schools in the Bergen County geographic area offering the alternate exam on October 13 or October 24. Exam registration is not transferable between schools. Contact the alternate schools directly to check for space availability and instructions.
