The Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test, notably known as the PSAT is an exam very similar to the SAT. The PSAT/NMSQT(National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test), is offered in the fall, and this exam is a good indicator of how you'll perform on the SAT, while determining your eligibility for a National Merit Scholarship. It is also usually the first time when students take a standardized exam for colleges, but please understand that your scores will not be sent to colleges, and do not impact your high school grades whatsoever.
**The PSAT will be an online exam beginning in Fall 2023
