The practice SAT, known as the PSAT will be given at Beverly High School on Saturday, October 16th from 7:30am to 12:30pm. The PSAT is recommended for juniors planning to attend a four year college and sophomores in honors level courses. It is the only time of year that the PSAT is offered.
The PSAT is truly a practice SAT, it will never be a part of a student's record to colleges, but may qualify students for scholarships. Taking the PSAT will make a student more prepared for the real SAT, administered in the spring of junior year. According to the College Board, students who take the PSAT score 120 points higher on the SAT than those who don’t. For more detailed information, visit www.collegeboard.com/psat
Registration will take place beginning Monday, October 4th. Students must register after school only, not during the school day, in the B wing office. Registration will run from October 4th through October 15th.
Cost of the PSAT will be $25 until October 13th and $30 on October 14th and 15th. Register early to avoid the $5 late fee. Cash or check payable to “BHS PSAT”. Fee waivers are available for juniors; please see your counselor. Results will be available in December during a counselor presentation.
