PSAT/NMSQT

Practice for the SAT® and Qualify for Scholarships
The Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) measures the skills your child has developed over the course of his education. These include
*    Critical reading skills
*    Math problem-solving skills
*    Writing skills
Students take the PSAT/NMSQT in the eleventh grade to qualify for the National Merit Scholarship Corporation's scholarship programs and to prepare for the SAT. Your child can also benefit from taking the test in the tenth grade or earlier because he'll get personalized feedback on the academic skills he needs for college. By taking the test before eleventh grade, he'll have more time to develop these skills and to begin the college planning process. In 2005, 53 percent of PSAT/NMSQT test-takers were in tenth grade or earlier.
Why Students Take the PSAT/NMSQT
 In addition to assessing critical academic skills, the PSAT/NMSQT provides an opportunity to:
*    Prepare for the SAT Reasoning Test™: the test uses similar questions and the same directions.
*    Qualify for scholarships (if your child is in eleventh grade).
*    Compare scores with other college-bound students around the country.
*    Forecast SAT scores.
*    Get feedback on skill strengths and weaknesses.
*    Get free information from colleges and scholarship programs through the Student Search Service®.
*    Plan ahead for college and a career.

PSAT Test Date:
Saturday, October 18, 2014.  Students may register in HS Book Store with Mrs. Healy from September 19th -October 9th.  Test fee this year is the same as last year- $23.00. Limited seating is available. Checks made payable to Iroquois Central School District.  For more information, please go to: http://www.collegeboard.com  The test is given at Iroquois High School and students are asked to report at 7:30am in the front foyer; testing lasts until about 11:00am. Space is limited to the first 180 students.

Meet the SAT®

The SAT is a 3 hour and 45 minute test that measures the critical thinking, mathematical reasoning, and writing skills that students need to do college-level work.
What Is the Test Like?
The test's three sections are divided into nine subsections, including a 25-minute essay, which are timed separately:
Section    Tests Ability To
Critical Reading
(3 sections)    
*    Understand and analyze what is read
*    Recognize relationships between parts of a sentence
*    Understand word meaning in context
Math
(3 sections)    Solve problems involving:
*    Algebra and functions
*    Geometry and measurement
*    Number and operations
*    Data analysis, statistics, and probability
Writing
(3 sections)    
*    Use standard written English
*    Identify sentence errors
*    Write an essay and develop a point of view

There are several breaks between sections, during which your child is welcome to eat or drink any snacks she has brought.

How Important Are SAT Scores?
The most important factor for college admissions is your child's high school transcript—judged by grades received and the rigor of the courses. SAT scores are intended to supplement your child's record (and other information, such as extracurricular activities and recommendations).
When Should My Child Take the SAT?
Most students take the SAT at national administrations during their junior and/or senior year in high school. However, there are no age or grade restrictions for taking the test.
At least half of all students take the SAT twice—in the spring of junior year and in the fall of senior year. What's more, most students improve their scores the second time around. All scores are reported to colleges, but colleges generally look only at the highest scores.There is no limit to the number of times a student can take the SAT 's.
