It is recommended that High School Juniors who plan to apply to college take the PSAT in October.  This test, offered through the College Board, is administered at local high schools. You cannot register online but must contact the school directly for dates, times, and registration information. The Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) is a program co-sponsored by the College Board and National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC). It's a standardized test that provides firsthand practice for the SAT┬«. It also gives you a chance to enter NMSC scholarship programs and gain access to college and career planning tools. The PSAT/NMSQT measures:

  • Critical reading skills
  • Math problem-solving skills
  • Writing skills

You have developed these skills over many years, both in and out of school. This test doesn't require you to recall specific facts from your classes. The most common reasons for taking the PSAT/NMSQT are to:

  • Receive feedback on your strengths and weaknesses on skills necessary for college study. You can then focus your preparation on those areas that could most benefit from additional study or practice.
  • See how your performance on an admissions test might compare with that of others applying to college.
  • Enter the competition for scholarships from NMSC (grade 11).
  • Help prepare for the SAT. You can become familiar with the kinds of questions and the exact directions you will see on the SAT.
  • Receive information from colleges when you check "yes" to Student Search Service.

PSAT Test Information


The SAT is one of the two major standard College Entrance exams accepted by US colleges.  Most students take the SAT in the SPRING of their Junior year so that they can begin their college applications in the fall.  Many students take the test more than once - often in the fall of their Senior year. The SAT has three parts with four (two for math) sections: Reading, Writing & Language, Math with calculator, and Math without calculator.
