2. Why take the PSAT/NMSQT exam?

10th grade students are encouraged to take the PSAT as a first step toward college admissions testing. This gives students and parents an idea of areas of academic strength and areas to practice, relative to what is tested on the SAT. Students are also encouraged to take the PSAT in 10th grade in order to begin receiving information from colleges in which they have an interest. The PSAT is one of the very first steps in opening up communications with specific schools. Taking the PSAT can assist students in practicing their test taking skills and get them ready for retaking the exam during their junior year.

11th grade 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, 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. Where do you report for the PSAT/NMSQT exam?

On the morning of the exam, students will report directly to the XXXXXX at 7:30 a.m. No student will be admitted to the testing site after the testing begins.

4. When are scores released?
