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 October 14. To cancel, please email email@example.com and include your name, name of the school, and the exam title to cancel (PSAT.)
5. Exam Day Rules:
Masks and social distancing will be required at all times! Students must bring own calculator, #2 (not mechanical) pencils with good erasers and pencil sharpeners. No bags, phones, Smart watches, food or drink allowed in the room. If you feel unwell or have a temperature on the morning of the test, please do not come to campus and contact the testing coordinator.
