The Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test and National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT), is a practice test for the SAT exam and is administered in October during a school day each year. Students in the 9th, 10th, and 11th grades are eligible 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.
