Below you will see a list of Frequently Asked Questions regarding the upcoming PSAT 10, PSAT/NMSQT & SAT that will be offered to all sophomores, juniors, & seniors on Wednesday, October 13th.

What is the difference between the PSAT 10, PSAT/NMSQT, & the SAT?

  • The PSAT 10 is only offered to Sophomores and gives students an opportunity to practice and get used to the testing environment. 

  • PSAT/NMSQT is only offered to Juniors (usually offered in the fall) and is a preliminary test designed to serve as a practice that is slightly easier and shorter than the official SAT. During junior year, students can qualify for the National Merit Scholarship Program ( I have attached more details about the NMSQT here

  • The PSAT 10 & the PSAT/NMSQT are the same in terms of subject matter and difficulty. Here is a helpful document for parents. 

  • The SAT is offered to both Juniors & Seniors and monitors students’ college readiness. The exam evaluates reading, writing, language, and math skills. Students can send their SAT scores to colleges that they are applying to. Please keep in mind that the UC’s & CSU’s are test-blind and are not accepting test scores. Many other colleges are test-blind and give students the option to submit their test score or not without penalty. Check out the list of colleges that are test-blind.
