PSAT Testing Day is Wednesday, Oct. 17. All 9th, 10th and 11th graders will take the PSAT in the morning while 12th graders will be participate in college and transition-related activities in the auditorium. For 9th and 10th graders, the PSAT is primarily a practice test for the SAT. For 11th graders, the PSAT results are used for qualification purposes for the National Merit Scholarship Programs.
The counseling department has distributed PSAT Student Guides to all test-takers through classroom guidance sessions. The guides contain information about the tests as well as a full-length practice test. Students are encouraged to take the practice test before testing day.
Students are reminded to bring #2 pencils and calculators for testing. The College Board does not allow makeup testing for the PSATs so it is important that students arrive at school on time. Counselors will distribute score reports to students in mid-December through lunch-time grade-level assemblies. Juniors will be encouraged to register for an SAT date in the Spring by using www.collegeboard.org. Sophomores and Juniors in AP classes will be reminded to register for SAT subject tests if appropriate. More information about the PSAT can be found at www.collegeboard.org/psat.
