REVISED- DUE to College Board's interface crashing on Wednesday, October 11th we will have 1 make up session on Wednesday, October 18th
FOR any 8th grader that WANTS to take it. Only students who SIGN UP will take the PSAT on Wednesday, October 18th.
All 8th grade students in Horry County will participate in the PSAT/NMSQT this year on Wednesday, October 11, 2023.
*There is NO MAKE UP DAY for PSAT.
The PSAT is divided into 4 TIMED tests: Reading, Writing & Language, Math with Calculator, and Math without Calculator.
Students must complete all 4 sections to receive a score from College Board. Scores are usually released mid December from College Board.
Tips to prepare for the PSAT/NMSQT:
- Student Study Guides emailed to all parents and students on September 14th.
- Visit KHAN Academy at https://www.khanacademy.org This site has lots of practice tests for the SAT (which covers the same knowledge areas).
- You can also take practice tests straight from College Board at https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/psat-nmsqt-psat-10/practice/full-length-practice-tests
The PSAT/NMSQT is based off of knowledge learned from English I, Algebra I, and Algebra II- so this is just a practice test for our 8th graders to get them comfortable with the format of PSAT/SAT/ACT😊😊😊
