The PSAT 8/9 is intended to help 8th and 9th grade students plan a path to college. And although the exam does not directly affect scholarship opportunities like the PSAT/NMSQT (which students will take in the 11th grade), or college applications like the SAT, the PSAT 8/9 is a useful way to gauge your overall readiness for the rigors of our high school curriculum and AP courses.
The PSAT 10 is essentially the same test as the PSAT/NMSQT. However, the PSAT 10 is geared specifically for sophomores and administered only once in the Spring. Like the PSAT 8/9, it DOES NOT qualify students for National Merit or any other scholarship opportunities. However, it is still a helpful test to prepare and practice for the PSAT/NMSQT and SAT exams.
