College Board School Code:



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:

Reading   60 min
Writing and Language  35 min
Math 70 min

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
