2. Why take the PSAT/NMSQT exam?

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 (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. 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. What if I miss the exam?

If you miss the exam offered by Paramus on October 10, you can contact College Board to get a list of schools offering the alternate exam on Saturday, October 13 or on Wednesday, October 24 (during school hours.) You will need to contact those schools directly and see if they have exams available and how to register.

6. What if I qualify for a fee waiver on the PSAT exam?

College Board provides each school with a number of fee waivers for eligible students. Please see Ms. Boyle in the Guidance Office to confirm eligibility and to receive a fee waiver code that will be entered into the online order form.
