What is the PSAT?
There used to be an easier answer. The College Board has changed the PSAT with the redesigned SAT. There are 3 types of PSATs available to students. The scoring is slightly different and if the student chooses they may use their scores to set up a study plan with Khan Academy.
- PSAT/NMSQT (Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test) is a preliminary test which is given in October of student’s sophomore and junior years. Only juniors are able to earn National Merit Scholarships.
- PSAT 10
This test is designed for 10th graders and will be administered between February 22 and March 4. Students will not be eligible for National Merit scholarships but may be eligible for College Board Scholarships.
- PSAT 8/9
This test is available for 8th and 9th graders. It can be used for practice and establishes a baseline for college and career readiness.
