PSAT TEST DATE 2022 - Wednesday, October 12th




    Preliminary SAT /National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test 

    The PSAT/NMSQT is typically administered only in October at State College High School. Juniors considering college are encouraged to take this test as a practice for the SAT. Sophomores also may take this test as SAT preparation. The score report shows correct and incorrect answers, question by question, offers valuable feedback on strengths and weaknesses, and gives advice regarding how students can improve their SAT scores.  
    PSAT scores enable you to do the following:
    1.  See correct answers and explanations
    2.  Get a personalized SAT study plan
    3.  Search for colleges
    4.  Explore majors and careers
    5.  Learn about scholarship programs
    6.  Take a personality test
    7.  Learn about their AP course/exam potential
    Students attempting to qualify for National Merit status MUST take this test the year before they graduate. For most students, this is junior year. 
    Go to the CollegeBoard/PSAT Website to learn more.
    The SCASD SAT Coordinator, Jennifer Scudder, can be reached at jls68@scasd.org

    PSAT Score Report Information  

    Go to: psat.org/myscore

    • Create an account OR enter username and password if you already have an account.
    • Make your USER ID & PASSWORD something you will remember – you will need it to take future SAT's.
    • The information entered when you create an account MUST MATCH EXACTLY with what you entered on your bubble sheet on test day.

    • It is recommended to use a NON-SCASD EMAIL ADDRESS because you may need to access your scores after graduation. If you already have an account using your SCASD email address you can change it at any time in your "Account Settings".


    If you cannot access your scores:

    • Students who made a previous Collegeboard account can check “account settings” or click “Matching Tool“ to check all information is correct and that required fields are complete.

    • If no scores are available - call PSAT/NMSQT HELPLINE @ 866-433-7728 (8:00-4:00) busiest times are 11:30-1:00pm. 

    • Email help line: psathelp@info.collegeboard.org
