    PSAT

    The PSAT 10 test will be given to Sophomores on April 2 from 8:30 a.m.-11:30 a.m. Registration takes place at Edina High School. Students must register to take the test. The PSAT is a practice SAT and is also the qualifying test for the National Merit Scholarship program. See PSAT for more information about the test, registration information and who should take it.

    The PSAT is an optional test offered primarily for juniors.  Traditionally, about 35% of the Edina sophomores take the PSAT. The majority of those who take it are in the upper third of their class.

    The Preliminary SAT®/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test is a co-sponsored program by the College Board and National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC).

    PSAT/NMSQT stands for Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. It's a standardized test that provides firsthand practice for the SAT Reasoning Test™. It also gives you a chance to enter National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) scholarship programs.

    The PSAT/NMSQT measures:

    • critical reading skills
    • math problem-solving skills
    • writing skills

    You have developed these skills over many years, both in and out of school. This test doesn't require you to recall specific facts from your classes.

    The most common reasons for taking the PSAT/NMSQT are:

    • to receive feedback on your strengths and weaknesses on skills necessary for college study. You can then focus your preparation on those areas that could most benefit from additional study or practice.
    • to see how your performance on an admissions test might compare with that of others applying to college.
    • to enter the competition for scholarships from the National Merit Scholarship Corporation ( only for grade 11).
    • to help prepare for the SAT. You can become familiar with the kinds of questions and the exact directions you will see on the SAT.
    • to receive information from colleges when you check "yes" to Student Search Service.
