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/NMSQT® measures verbal, mathematical, and writing abilities important to success in university and provides practice for taking the SAT® later in the junior or senior year. The PSAT® can be used to predict performance on the SAT®. The PSAT® is not used in university admission; scores will be sent only to the student and to the school. In the junior year, the PSAT® exam score is used as the qualifying score for the National Merit Scholarship Program.
3. When are scores released?
PSAT® results are usually sent to schools in late December and then are released to students via College Board’s online system soon after.
4. Can I cancel my exam and receive a refund?
No. Cancellations and refunds of the exam fees is not possible.
5. How do I prepare for the exam?
College Board offers detailed information as well as preparation tools developed in partnership with The Khan Academy. To access these tools, click here.
6. Where do I report for the exam and what do I bring?
