PSAT: The PSAT is a practice exam for the SAT.  The PSAT is given in October every year and students sign up and pay for the exam at Kirkwood High School.  Juniors are encouraged to take this exam, but it is not mandatory.  The PSAT is a great primer for the SAT, but it’s more than just a trial run. PSAT scores, from their junior year, are used to identify National Merit Scholars and award merit scholarships. The PSAT/NMSQT is the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.

    Sophomores are welcome to take the exam for practice.  However, their scores do not qualify them for any National Merit qualification.  Only junior year PSAT scores can qualify them for National Merit Scholarships.
