This test measures the critical reading, math problem solving and writig skills. It provides:

1. Practice for the SAT Reasoning Test,

2. Feedback on your strengths and weaknesses for college study skills,

3. A chance to qualify for the National Merit Scholarship Corporation scholarship programs,

4. Information from colleges when you check yes to the Student Search Service.

The PSAT/NMSQT is for Juniors. Freshmen and Sophomores may take the test. It is given ONLY in October. In September, the high school will tell you how to sign up. When your test fee is paid, you receive an information booklet. Although the test will include many changes similar to those on the new SAT, it will not include an essay nor third year college preparatory math questions. For details visit the Collegeboard website.

College Board SAT

The SAT Reasoning Test (formerly Scholastic Aptitude Test and Scholastic Assessment Test ) is a measure of the critical thinking skills needed for academic success in college. It assesses how well you analyze and solve problems. Each section of the SAT is scored on a scale of 200-800, and the writing section will contain two subscores. The SAT is typically taken by high school juniors and seniors.

The SAT Subject Tests are designed to measure knowledge and skills in particular subject areas, as well as the ability to apply that knowledge. Subject tests are one hour and multiple choice tests. Many colleges use these exams as an indication of subject mastery and as an entrance requirement. Some colleges specify the Subject Tests they require; others allow applicants to choose which tests to take. Check which tests your college(s) require.
