2. Why take the PSAT/NMSQT® exam?
9th, 10th and 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 may help to reduce testing anxiety
3. When are scores released?
PSAT® results will be available online in December via the student’s College Board Profile. When scores are ready online, you’ll get an email with instructions on creating your College Board account, going to the online score portal, and using your access code to view your score report
4. Can I cancel my exam and receive a refund?
No. Cancellations and refunds of the exam fees is not possible.
5. Are there fee reductions or financial assistance options available?
The College Board provides a limited number of fee waivers for eligible Junior students. Please contact PHS Test Coordinator, Elizabeth Patt, at firstname.lastname@example.org to apply for the fee waiver. Students who are approved will be provided with a fee waiver discount code to apply to the online payment form at the link below. All students must complete the online payment form.
