The Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) is a program cosponsored by the College Board and National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC). A standardized test that provides firsthand practice for the SAT®, it also gives SFHS 11th graders a chance to enter NMSC scholarship programs and gain access to college and career planning tools.
The redesigned PSAT/NMSQT is aligned with the redesigned SAT and will launch in October 2015. Like the SAT, the redesigned PSAT/NMSQT will measure the skills and knowledge that are essential for college readiness and success.
The redesigned test includes:
Writing and Language
Total: 2 hours, 45 minutes. This test is paper based.
Some scores will be reported on the same scale used for the SAT: this scale ranges from 400 to 1600 for the composite score, 200-800 for two area scores, and 10-40 for test scores
St. Francis sophomores and juniors will be automatically registered for this exam. No additional fees are required.
