This test is usually taken by high school juniors, but sophomores may wish to consider taking it as well. You may take it more than once.Why you should consider taking this test:

  • Parents received a detailed analysis of their student's test scores showing areas of strength and weakness
  • Institutions use these scores in determining scholarships and financial aid 
  • Students gain practice in standardized test taking in preparation for the ACT or SAT tests in later years


Here is a helpful website that gives information about the PSAT as well as recommendations on how to prepare for the test.
