What is the PSAT?

  • The Preliminary SAT (PSAT) is a test taken in April by all 9th and 10th grade students in Westminster Public Schools in preparation for the SAT. The PSAT is in much of the same format as the SAT, and is a great way to prepare for the SAT before your junior year. There are also colleges and scholarships, such as the National Merit Scholarship, that recruit using scores from the PSAT.

    After you complete the PSAT, your scores will sync with your Khan Academy account. This will allow you to focus your studying on the test items that you may have missed during your PSAT and improve your future test scores.
