2. Why take the PSAT/NMSQT® exam?
9th, 10th and 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 (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 may help to reduce testing anxiety
3. When are scores released?
PSAT® results will be available online in December via the student’s College Board Profile. When scores are ready online, you’ll get an email with instructions on creating your College Board account, going to the online score portal, and using your access code to view your score report
4. Can I cancel my exam and receive a refund?
