The PSAT/NMSQT is the Preliminary SAT and National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. This test is designed to introduce students to the SAT, help them gain an understanding of the test format, and help them to identify areas for improvement. After taking the PSAT all students are provided with a detailed score report, which is reviewed with all students in their English class, as well as shown the various resources available to help them improve their scores. All freshman and sophomores take the PSAT in April and all juniors take the PSAT/NMSQT in October.
