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. Can I cancel the exam and get a refund?
Cancellations are not allowed per Lenape Valley Regional HS policies.
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.
What do I need to know about the test day?
Exam day specifics and reporting information will be communicated by your campus closer to the test date. Please plan for the following:
- ALL students taking the exam must have a CURRENT school- or government-issued photo ID (such as a driver’s license or school ID.)
- Students must bring their approved digital device in a fully-charged state to the exam (we recommend to bring a charge cord as well!)
- Restart the device before exam day so that the exam app “Bluebook” is the most current version.
- Students may bring water and a snack
- Review the College Board digital exam requirements for exam day (what you may and may not bring): https://satsuite.collegeboard.org/psat-nmsqt/taking-the-test/what-to-bring-leave/what-to-bring
- Student must bring an approved calculator. There’s a digital graphing calculator built into the Blue Book application, but you can bring your own if you like. A physical calculator will not be provided by Lenape Valley Regional High School.
- Students must know what their College Board account/profile log in credentials are – this is the same account you would use to log into MyAP for AP Classes/exams as well as the same account used for SAT exam orders on http://collegeboard.org
- Students must know the log in credentials and check that they are correct BEFORE exam day since contacting College Board on exam day will not be feasible due to time constraints.
- Do NOT create a new account or profile if you’re struggling to log into your previously created account! All exam scores and information must be on the same account.
- If a student is not sure how to log into their College Board accounts, or need to create one, please visit the College Board Accounts page at https://account.collegeboard.org/
- The “BlueBook” app has a built-in calculator, but it is recommended that students bring their own external calculator. One will not be provided.
When and how are scores for the exam released?
Exam scores are typically released in November and December via The College Board’s online portal.
When PSAT/NMSQT® scores are ready online, the student will receive from College Board an email with instructions to go to the online score report, and how to use the access code to view scores. Please visit College Board’s website for detailed information on how to access PSAT/NMSQT® scores.
