PSAT Information for October 15, 2014 $20.00 See Ms. Joann in the Bookstore to sign up and pay for the exam (Waivers for Free/Reduced Apply to Juniors only) and these students must see Mr. Grace. If you have any questions please contact Doria Wilson Doria.firstname.lastname@example.org
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 (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.
What's on the Test?
The PSAT/NMSQT includes five sections: Two 25-minute critical reading sections, two 25-minute math sections, and
one 30-minute writing skills section. The whole test requires two hours and 10 minutes.
Two 25-minute critical reading sections = 48 questions
Two 25-minute math sections = 38 questions
· 10 Student-produced responses or grid-ins
Students are advised to bring a calculator with which they are comfortable. Students should have basic knowledge of 4 math categories:
· Numbers and Operation
· Algebra and Functions (but not 3rd year level math that may appear on the new SAT)
· Geometry and Measurement
· Data Analysis, Statistics and Probability
One 30-minute writing section = 39 questions
These multiple-choice questions on writing skills measure a student's ability to express ideas effectively in standard-written English, to recognize faults in usage and structure, and to use language with sensitivity to meaning.
