PSAT & SAT
The Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQ) is a standardized test that provides firsthand practice for the SAT Reasoning Test and gives students a chance to qualify for scholarship programs. Essentialy, the PSAT is a shorter version of the SAT. It includes 5 sections that measure critical reading skills, math problem-solving skills, and writing skills. Some of the most common reasons for taking the test are to receive feedback on your strengths and weaknesses, see how your scores compare to those of your peers, enter the National Merit Scholarship competition, and practice for the SAT.
The SAT is the nation's most widely used admissions test among colleges and universities. It assesses the critical thinking skills students need for academic success in college. The SAT consists of several different question types, including a student-produced essay, multiple-choice questions, and student-produced responses (grid-ins). The SAT is made up of 10 sections and tests critical reading, mathematics, and writing.
