PSAT/NMSQT

https://www.khanacademy.org/test-prep/sat/new-sat-tips-planning/new-sat-how-to-prep/a/full-length-psat-nmsqt

The College Board and Khan Academy® have partnered to make practicing easy and personal. At Khan Academy, you can access thousands of questions approved by the College Board, take official SAT practice tests, and create personalized study plans based on your results.

Taking an SAT practice test is good practice for the PSAT/NMSQT and PSAT 10 because the assessments measure the same skills and knowledge in ways that make sense for different grade levels.

Fee Waiver Information

  • Fee waivers are for low-income 11th-graders taking the PSAT/NMSQT.

  • Schools, not students, request fee waivers. Many schools cover all or part of the cost for their students. Ask your school counselor if you can get a fee waiver.
