2. Why take the PSAT/NMSQT®
11th grade students 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 soon after via their online College Board profile accounts.
4. Can I cancel my exam and receive a refund?
Students who submit a cancellation request to the APTS Cancellation Desk before end of the day on October 26, 2020 will be eligible for a refund of $12. To submit the request, email firstname.lastname@example.org and include your student’s name, name of the school, and the title of the exam to cancel.
5. Are there fee reductions or assistance available for this exam?
The College Board offers a limited number of fee waivers to qualifying students. To apply and request information, email Mr. Kevin O’Sullivan at email@example.com. Approved students will be provided with a fee reduction code to apply to the online order form.
