The PSAT (Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test) is administered to all Hagerty High Freshmen, Sophomores, and Juniors each year in October. The test is administered during the typical school day (in the morning) and this year’s test date is Wednesday, October 19th.
What is the PSAT? It stands for the Preliminary SAT/NMSQT (National Merit Qualifying Test) and is a standardized test that provides firsthand practice for the SAT Reasoning Test. The PSAT provides helpful practice for the SAT and other college-based assessments. Either the SAT or ACT is required by most all colleges for entering freshmen. Juniors who take this test are automatically entered in the National Merit Scholarship Program; high scoring juniors may qualify as National Merit Scholars.
Students will receive a test preparation booklet which they should review prior to the test administration. Students are reminded that they need to bring their student identification card on the day of the test (October 19th).
