PSAT

  • Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT)

    WHEN:

    October 6 and 9.

    WHO:

    All Freshmen, Sophomores, and Juniors

    WHY:

    The PSAT/NMSQT is highly relevant to your future success because it focuses on the skills and knowledge at the heart of education. It measures:

    • What you learn in high school
    • What you need to succeed in college
     
    When you take the PSAT/NMSQT, you’re automatically screened for the National Merit® Scholarship Program, an academic competition for recognition and scholarships.

    The College Board’s scholarship partners provide millions of dollars to qualified low-income and minority students — and they use the PSAT/NMSQT to help find them.

    The College Board recognizes academically outstanding Hispanic/Latino U.S. Juniors who take the PSAT/NMSQT. Learn more about the National Hispanic Recognition Program.

    PSAT/NMSQT Student Guide

    The PSAT/NMSQT evaluates the skills each student has developed in mathematics and evidence-based reading and writing; and also provides the tools a student needs to reach his or her college goals.  Because the PSAT/NMSQT evaluates the same skills as the SAT, taking this assessment is an effective way for a student to start getting ready for the SAT.  Additionally, the PSAT/NMSQT gives each student personalized feedback about their academic strengths and weaknesses, helping each student to prepare for success in college and careers. A score of 430 on the math section also provides students with an Algebra 1 EOC concordant score needed for graduation requirements.
