PSAT/NMSQT is the national qualifying test for the National Merit scholarship program.  This test is typically offered to high school juniors. This test measures verbal and math reasoning skills important for doing well in college. It also gives practice for taking SAT  because both tests have the same kinds of questions and similar scores. It is recommended that any junior in the top 20% of the class should consider taking this test, but it is open to any junior. This test is offered October 16, 2019 and the cost for the test is $17.00. Sign up deadline is September 6, 2019. See website for full description of National Merit scholarship program: https://www.nationalmerit.org/s/1758/start.aspx?gid=2&pgid=61
