This year, all OHS Juniors will be taking the PSAT on Wednesday October 13, 2021, free of charge. (In the past, we assessed only those Juniors who registered and paid a fee.) Thank you for your support and for making this assessment a priority!
Why take the PSAT/NMSQT? This test is often viewed as a practice test for the SAT, which many Orono students do not take. However, this is also great practice for the ACT, as both tests are timed, standardized, and offer a similar testing experience.
Entry point to the National Merit Scholarship program. The PSAT/NMSQT is the qualifying exam–and thus the only pathway–for entry into the National Merit Scholarship program. PSAT scores, from the exam taken fall of junior year, are used to identify students as National Merit Semifinalists. Semifinalists are announced fall of senior year. Those students are invited to move ahead in the competition by completing a final application for the National Merit Scholarship competition. Awards are offered in the spring of senior year to qualifying students. (For example, see the University of Minnesota website for the Gold Scholar Award and the National Merit UMN Scholarship.)
Practice tests and answer sheets. You can find more information, including full-length practice tests and answer sheets from the College Board. Juniors should take a timed practice test under authentic test conditions.
Junior PSAT/NMSQT student scores will be available to students online in mid-December. We will send out information on how to access those scores around that time. If you have any questions, please contact your student’s school counselor.
