2. Why take the PSAT/NMSQT® exam?
The PSAT/NMSQT® (Preliminary SAT®/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test) is a 2.5-hour version of the College Board’s SAT®. The PSAT® measures verbal, mathematical, and writing abilities important to success in university and provides practice for taking the SAT® later in grade 11. The PSAT® can be used to predict performance on the SAT®. The PSAT® is not used in US university admission; scores will be sent only to the student and to the school.

PSAT® results are usually sent to schools in late December and then are released to students via College Board’s online system soon after.
