2. Why take the PSAT/NMSQT® exam?
10th grade students are encouraged to take the 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 are encouraged to 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, 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.
