PSAT/NMSQT

 

What is it?

            The PSAT is an objective test measuring verbal and mathematical abilities that have been shown to be related to success in college work.  It helps you prepare for the College Board’s SAT.  In addition, juniors have the opportunity of entering the scholarship competition sponsored by the National Merit Scholarship Program.

            The test also gives you a chance to participate in the Student Search Service of the College Board.  Students who have participated receive materials from colleges and other post-secondary institutions, telling them about education programs and financial aid opportunities.
