The PSAT10 (grades 10–11) and National Merit Scholarship (grade 11) are offered by College Board during the month of October at local private/public schools. Visit www.collegeboard.com for more information on how to register. Students need to take the SAT or ACT if they are applying to universities in the United States, since most universities require students to submit test scores with their application.
EA students with academic, cognitive, intellectual, learning and health challenges interested in taking college-bound exams (i.e. PSAT, SAT, ACT) are required by ACT and CollegeBoard to have an active plan with their school prior to requesting accommodations for an exam. Accommodation requests take 6-8 weeks to be approved. Therefore, it is imperative to begin the process early. Learn how our AIMS/504 program can help you set up a plan.
Note: be sure to register for the test a few weeks in advance.
