The College Board automatically enters only high-scoring juniors into the National Merit Scholarship competition. The PSAT is not a district assessment with IEP provisions but rather a group-administered practice assessment overseen by the College Board without accommodations for ninth-graders and tenth-graders with IEPs or 504 Plans. Accommodations pre-approved by the College Board will be provided for eleventh-graders.
- Any student who does not feel well on the day of the test should stay home. Please see the COVID-19 health checklist.
- Students will have their temperature taken as they enter the building on test day and should maintain social distancing at all times.
- Testing rooms will be limited in capacity to ensure proper social distancing during testing.
- All students will be required to wear a mask/face covering during the PSAT administration.
- Doors will open at 7:30AM on October 17th. Testing will begin at 8AM.
- All testers will receive electronic copies of the PSAT student guides before the exam. This guide contains useful information, a practice test, and an answer key. We strongly recommend all test-takers use these guides to prepare for the PSAT.
- All multi-media devices (e.g. cell phones, iPods, Smart Watches), food/drink, and backpacks are restricted in student testing areas.
- All students taking the PSAT should bring calculators, pencils and erasers to the testing areas.
- Every student should get a good night’s sleep the night before the test and eat a healthy breakfast that morning.
Thank you for your help in making your student’s testing experience as successful as possible. More information is available at the Collegeboard website.
