PSAT will be offered Oct. 15 Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) for juniors will be administered on Tuesday, Oct. 15 at 8:30 a.m. at Vermillion High School. Cost is $11. Some sophomores should consider taking the PSAT.
The PSAT/NMSQT measures verbal reasoning, critical reading, math problem-solving and writing skills students have developed over many years, both in and out of school. The PSAT/NMSQT gives students the opportunity to practice for the SAT I Reasoning Test, enter scholarship competitions, seek information from colleges, and get feedback about critical academic skills. The PSAT/NMSQT requires two hours and 45 minutes for the administration and the testing of the five sections.
Before taking the test, students will receive a student bulletin containing a complete test with an answer key and scoring instructions. In December, students will receive a report of answers and their test booklets to help them interpret their test results and to plan for college.
