1. Registration & Fees
Students must register for the 2020 PSAT/NMSQT® exam between August 1, 2020 and September 11, 2020 (Midnight CST). No late registration is possible.
The exam will be administered at Princeton High School on Wednesday, October 14, 2020, during school hours. The cost for each exam is $20.00.
2. Fee Reduction Information
A limited number of College Board fee waivers for PSAT/NMSQT® may be available to students who are eligible for free or reduced lunch or other public assistance programs. To apply for a fee reduction, contact Ms. Stokes prior to the registration deadline date. Students who qualify for a fee reduction will receive a discount code to apply to the online registration form.
3. 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, 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.
4. Where do you report for the PSAT/NMSQT® exam?
On the morning of the exam, students will report directly to the Practice Gym at 7:30 a.m. No student will be admitted to the testing site after the testing begins. Students will be released from the testing site back to their regular schedules at the conclusion of the exam.
5. When are scores released?
PSAT/NMSQT® results are usually sent to schools in late December and they will be released to students during a meeting with the Counselors. This meetings will help explain test results and give strategies to assist students in preparing for SAT® exams. The date of this meeting has been tentatively scheduled for January, 2021. More information in the “Official Student Guide to the PSAT/NMSQT® – 2020” bulletin available in Ms. Stokes’s office.
6. Can I take the PSAT/NMSQT® more than once per year?
Due to COVID-19 health concerns, College Board is offering multiple administration dates for 2020-2021. Students may take the exam on only ONE exam date. Therefore taking the October 14, 2020 means that a student cannot register for an alternate PSAT/NMSQT® in 2020-2021.
