What is the PSAT?  The Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) is a standardized test that provides first-hand practice for the SAT. It also gives Grade 11 students a chance to enter National Merit scholarship programs and gain access to college and career planning tools. Students will also receive feedback on their strengths/weaknesses for college preparedness. 
Who takes this test?  This optional test is a national assessment for  Grade 11  students and is used to qualify for the National Merit Scholarship Program.   Grade 10  may take it as a practice SAT test; they may not enter the National Merit scholarship competition until their junior year.
When and Where is the test?     Wednesday, October 10, 8:00 AM– 12:15 PM .  Test will be in North Gym . If you have a calculator, please bring it!  If you do not have one, we will provide calculators.
