The Preliminary SAT®/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT) is a co-sponsored program by the College Board and National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC). It’s a standardized test that provides firsthand practice for the SAT Reasoning Test™. It also gives you a chance to enter National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) scholarship programs.
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.
- 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 (grade 11).
- 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.
College-bound juniors should take the PSATs, which is offered once a year in October. Students and parents should look for announcements beginning in early October regarding the test date and sign-up procedures. The test is offered at LSRHS, and sign-ups take place in the Career Center. The PSAT is designed for juniors, although sophomores may take the test. Please see your counselor to determine if taking the test as a sophomore is appropriate.
