PSAT 8/9

The PSAT 8/9 tests the same skills and knowledge as the SAT, PSAT/NMSQT, and PSAT 10—in a way that makes sense for eighth and ninth graders. It measures what they’re already learning, shows them whether they’re on track for college, and lets them know where they need the most improvement. That means students have time to tackle these areas long before they take the SAT.


PSAT/NMSQT

The PSAT/NMSQT tests the same skills and knowledge as the SAT. It measures what the students are already learning, shows them whether they’re on track for college, and lets them know where they need the most improvement. That means students have time to tackle these areas before they take the SAT. Additionally, the NMSQT can provide opportunities for scholarships and scholarship information.

  • ERW (English Reading and Writing) are combined for a total maximum score of 800.

  • Mathematics has a total maximum score of 800.
