    *The Test:

    The PSAT will be given on Oct. 29th, 2020 to most 10th and 11th graders who are enrolled in English II or English III at Guyer High School.

    *Deadline for Homeschool students to register: September 17th

    The test will be given during the school day.

    This test is one of the most important tests that a student will take in preparation for college. Students who take the PSAT/NMSQT exam in their junior year are automatically entered into the National Merit Scholarship competition. This exam is the only way to become a National Merit Scholar and/or to be recognized as a high-achieving Hispanic or African American scholar.

    From the PSAT, students will be given a comparable SAT score that will allow them to see where they are compared to all other students across the nation that they are competing with for college entrance, scholarships, and financial aid.

    All 10th and 11th graders will have access to My College QuickStart, a free, personalized college plan that a student can use to improve their academic skills, to improve their SAT or ACT college entrance exam scores, and to research colleges. My College QuickStart also allows students to research careers and help them determine a career path. Additionally, student results will be sent to colleges so they can be contacted for scholarships.

    Students who set up an account online with College Board also have access to free SAT tutorials.

    *Results: Students with a College Board account will be able to access their scores online usually by mid-December.

    *Students are encouraged to bring their own basic graphing or scientific calculator on test day. (We will not have enough for everyone)
    *Please send your student with a MASK, sack lunch, snacks, and water for testing day.
