The PSAT test, is a practice test for the SAT exam. We encourage 8th, 9th, 10th, and 11th graders to take this exam in preparation for the SAT. This test provides an excellent opportunity to participate in a National testing program, and can be an effective diagnostic tool. There is no passing score for this test.
All Clovis Unified 11th grade students will take the PSAT free of charge and are automatically registered.
The new PSAT/NMSQT includes a Reading Test, Writing and Language Test, and a Math Test. Test booklets and scored answer documents will be returned to students in January and an email will be sent out with information on how to review and interpret results.

The SAT also provides the opportunity for you to connect to scholarship opportunities, place out of certain college courses,and learn more about your academic strengths.
