High School Administrators and Counselors:

The PSAT is great practice for the SAT providing a useful measure of performance comparing scores of those of actual college board test takers in their same grade. It highlights strengths and any areas of needed improvement. The PSAT helps the student strategize as they think of college applications and can qualify for scholarships including the highly selective National Merit Scholarship Program.

PSAT October 2021 dates:

High schools will receive student guides for distribution prior to the October dates.  Additionally, high school principals will receive a guide to the National Merit Program.  PSAT Student Guide:
