    Preliminary SAT /National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test 

    The PSAT/NMSQT is typically administered only in October (this year is an exception). 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.

    PSAT Score Report Information  

    Go to studentscores.collegeboard.org:

    • 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 SATs.
    • The information entered when you create an account must match exactly what you entered on your bubble sheet test day.

    • It is usually good idea to use an email address other than your school email because you may want to access scores after graduation.


    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 required fields like address are complete.

    • If no scores then call PSAT/NMSQT help line @ 866-433-7728 (8:00-4:00) busiest times are 11:30-1:00pm. Press option 1, then press option 2.

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