2. Why take the PSAT/NMSQT®
11th grade students 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.
The National Merit Scholarship corporation will be recognizing both exam dates as the qualifying exam for the scholarship.
3. When are scores released?
PSAT® results are usually released 8-10 weeks after the exam. Students will receive an alert email from College Board when scores are ready, and will then be able to log into their College Board profiles at https://studentscores.collegeboard.org to retrieve the scores (College Board Profiles are the same accounts used to order SAT® exams, or to log into the MyAP AP® Exam system. If students do not have one, they will need to create a profile to access scores.)
4. Can I cancel my exam and receive a refund?
Full refund is possible if cancellation request is submitted by 11:59pm on September 12, 2021. To cancel, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and include your name, name of the school, and the exam title of the exam to cancel (PSAT.) Debit/Credit card fees are non-refundable.
5. Is there financial aid available for the PSAT/NMSQT® exam?
Students who qualify for a fee reduction would be able to receive a significant reduction in exam fees. To apply for a fee reduction, please contact the PSAT® Exam Coordinator, Ms. Harmon, at email@example.com to request the fee reduction. Students who are approved for the fee reduction will receive a Fee Reduction Code (discount code) to apply to the payment form on the APTS site. Code usage will be verified for eligibility.
6. Where do I report for the exam?
