SAT & PSAT

About PSAT/NMSQT

The PSAT will be given to any interested Sophomore or Junior on Wednesday, October 15, 2008. The testing period will begin at 8:00 am and conclude approximately 11:00 am.

Why should you take the PSAT? 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.
  • to see how your performance on an admissions test might compare with that of others applying to college.
  • to enter the competition for scholarships from the National Merit Scholarship Corporation.
  • to help prepare for the SAT. You can become familiar with the kinds of questions and the exact directions you will see on the SAT.
  • to receive information from colleges when you check "yes" to Student Search Service.
  • Students must register in the guidance office to be allowed to take the PSAT.
