Take advantage of the PSAT 8/9 and psat 10: THese are opportunities to improve YOUR score for the psat/nmsqt and QUALIFY you for the National Merit Scholarship Program junior year!

PSAT 8/9 tests the same skills and knowledge as PSAT 10, but in a way that's appropriate for eighth and ninth graders. 

The PSAT 10 is the same as the PSAT/NMSQT in terms of subject matter, but it's different in two ways: Students take it in the spring of 10th grade and it doesn't qualify students for the National Merit Scholarship Program. Any student can take this at a school that offers it. 

By taking the PSAT/NMSQT as a junior, students may meet the requirements to enter the National Merit® Scholarship Program, an academic competition for recognition and scholarships.

Free SAT Practice on Khan Academy is tailored for you, focusing on exactly what you need to practice most. 

The College Board National Recognition Programs

The College Board National Recognition Program opens on January 18. The program awards academic honors to top-performing Hispanic, Black, Indigenous, and rural students. Eligible sophomores and juniors will receive an email from BigFuture inviting them to apply.  Student eligibility is determined by performance on the PSAT/NMSQT®, PSAT™ 10, or AP® Exams. If you know a student who meets the eligibility criteria listed on their WEBSITE but doesn’t receive an invitation in January, please encourage them to self-nominate through the College Board website.
