2. Why take the PSAT/NMSQT® exam?
10th grade students are encouraged to take the PSAT/NMSQT® (known as PSAT®) as a first step toward college admissions testing. This gives students and parents an idea of areas of academic strength and areas to practice, relative to what is tested on the SAT. Students are also encouraged to take the PSAT® in 10th grade in order to begin receiving information from colleges in which they have an interest. The PSAT® is one of the very first steps in opening up communications with specific schools. Taking the PSAT® can assist students in practicing their test taking skills and get them ready for retaking the exam during their junior year.
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.
3. How do I prepare for the exam?
The College Board offers detailed information as well as preparation tools developed in partnership with The Khan Academy. To access these tools via The College Board’s PSAT/NMSQT® informational page, click here.
4. What do I need to know about the test day?

- Students must bring two #2 pencils with erasers or they will not be admitted

5. Can I cancel the exam and get a refund?
