PSAT/ National Merit ScholarshipPSAT/NATIONAL MERIT SCHOLARSHIP QUALIFYING TESTThe PSAT/NMSQT is scheduled the third week of every October and is administered to 10th and 11th grade students during the school day. This practice test for the SAT is also the qualifying exam for the National Merit Scholarship Program, the National Hispanic Recognition Program, and the National Scholarship Service for African-American Students. It covers critical reading, writing, and math skills, and can be a valuable predictor for success in higher level courses, for future SAT scores, and for success in college. In partnership with the College Board, GPISD tests all sophomores with the PSAT, giving students an important opportunity to develop early college-readiness behaviors and skills. Students should also plan to take the PSAT in the fall of their junior year. Many scholarship and college applications ask for junior-year PSAT scores.For more information visit the College Board website: http://www.collegeboard.com/student/testing/psat/about.htmlRegistration: Automatic for sophomores (handled through the Counselor)All other levels must register through the CounselorType: Five timed sections
