    PSAT 10 Testing (Sophomores Only)

    The PSAT 10 (preliminary test for the SAT) is purely practice. This is the same test that the juniors took in the fall (the PSAT/NMSQT). It is the National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test when taken as a junior (only juniors are eligible for National Merit Recognition). Our hope is that by administering the PSAT 10 in the spring, sophomores will be able to test under more “normal” testing conditions to practice for future standardized testing.
