PSAT’s to be given to all 11th grade students on October 14th

We are pleased to announce that in partnership with The College Board, the PSAT’s (Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test) will be administered to all 11th grade students at Brunswick High School on Wednesday October 14, 2015 during school hours. Funding has been arranged for students to take the PSAT so the test will be available at no charge.

Every student who takes the PSAT will also receive a report called Score Report Plus, which will include not only scores and itemized feedback on test questions, but also an Improve Your Skills section. For each section of the test — verbal, math, and writing — students will receive personalized feedback based on their performance on the PSAT as well as suggestions for improvement.

In addition to acting as an SAT warm-up, the PSAT is also often referred to as the PSAT/NMSQT or National Merit Scholarship Qualifying test, because students who score exceptionally well on the assessment when they take it in the 11th grade may qualify for one of the prestigious National Merit Scholarships.

****** It important to note that the PSAT is also excellent practice for 11th grade students for other placement tests that they are likely to take in the future including the Accuplacer (often used by community colleges and trade schools) as well as the ASVAB (the Armed Services assessment).
