The PSAT/NMSQT will be held on Saturday, October 14, 2023, at Sutherland High School. The College Board has transitioned to a digital format that will require each student to download the Bluebook App to access practice tests and to test on October 14th. You may download the Bluebook App on your personal laptop, tablet, or desktop at this time. However, more information will be forthcoming on downloading Bluebook on your school issued laptop. Please know that students must use a laptop or tablet on test day. Phones cannot be used. For more information, please visit https://satsuite.collegeboard.org/psat-nmsqt .
The PSAT is used as a performance indicator for the SAT and scores will also be used for consideration in the National Merit Scholarship pool. Though highly recommended, the PSAT is not mandatory and PSAT scores are not used for college admission.
