Junior students will take the PSAT online on Wednesday, October 11. As this is the first time students will be taking the PSAT online, school IT staff and administrators will be assisting students with any necessary PSAT testing downloads in preparation for the test on October 11.
As a reminder, the PSAT tests students’ skills in reading, writing, and math. The test is 2 hours and 45 minutes.
The results of this test are used to determine those who qualify for National Merit Scholarships, a national academic recognition and scholarship program for all juniors conducted by National Merit Scholarship Corporation. Taking this test is most beneficial to students who could be in contention for recognition from the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. The National Merit Scholarship program recognizes the top 3% of high school juniors nationally based on their scores on the PSAT.
