The National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) (optional) measures verbal and math reasoning abilities. It is a predictor for the SAT test, and the score can be converted to an ACT score. Scores from the PSAT may qualify students to be National Merit Scholars.
Why take the PSAT/NMSQT?
We encourage high achieving juniors to take the PSAT/NMSQT because it identifies National Merit Scholars and enables students who score at the highest levels to qualify for college scholarships.
The PSAT can be used as a practice for the SAT. It allows students to compare their academic skills with those of other college-bound students.
