What is the PSAT? The PSAT/NMSQT is a test offered to students to practice for the SAT college entrance exam. The PSAT is a multiple-choice exam that assesses 3 content areas: mathematics, critical reading and writing skills. The PSAT is designed to provide students an opportunity to test in a similar testing environment as the SAT. (Please note: The SAT is usually taken during the end of junior and/or beginning of senior year of high school.) The PSAT is great practice for students wanting to familiarize themselves with and practice for the SAT exam.

The PSAT is also the qualifying test for the National Merit Scholarship, which students can only qualify for during their junior year. To learn more about the National Merit Scholarship and how to qualify visit www.nationalmerit.org.

Your school counselor can share a complete list of prohibited devices—just ask to see the Official Student Guide. 

During the Test

You will be allowed to have only these items on your desk:

  • A test book
  • An answer sheet
  • No. 2 pencils with erasers
  • An approved calculator—during one of the math sections only

Turn Off All Electronic Devices

You’ll need to turn off all electronic devices during the test and even during breaks. This includes cellphones. Be sure to turn off your watch alarm if you have one.

Why? Test centers are serious about security and quiet, so prohibited devices—which include cellphones, tablets, and MP3 players—must be turned off and put under your desk. Better yet: Leave them at home.

Important:
Really, Really Important!

You will be dismissed immediately, and your scores will be canceled if you use your phone or if it makes a noise—even during breaks. Your phone may also be confiscated and inspected.
