The Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) measures what you're learning in school, determines if you're on track, and opens doors for opportunities to prepare and pay for college.

    The district will administer the PSAT/NMSQT on Wednesday, October 13.  Unlike last year, we will no longer be restricting participants to students in the 11th grade.  However, the PSAT NMSQT contains items with Algebra I and some Geometry concepts, so if students have not completed Math I, they should not register.

    While all high school students can register to take the PSAT/NMSQT, the district will only pay for 11th-grade students who are likely to qualify for the National Merit Scholarship.  Any other students interested in taking the PSAT can pay $18 to take the assessment.

    Update: The PSAT allows 11th grade students the opportunity to potentially qualify for a National Merit scholarship if they receive a very high score (generally the top 1%). For this reason, WCPSS is offering the test free of charge to those Juniors (11th grade) with a 4.34 GPA and higher. These Juniors will be automatically registered - please do not complete our registration form. All other students who are interested in taking the PSAT must register and pay the $18 fee.
