PSAT/NMSQT offered at North Hills Oct. 14

Posted Wednesday, August 9, 2023

The Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test will be offered to North Hills students in grades 10 and 11 this fall.

The PSAT/NMSQT measures critical reading skills, math problem-solving skills and writing skills, and is a great tool for students considering college. North Hills High School offers the PSAT/NMSQT to allow students to receive feedback about strengths and weaknesses, enter the competition for National Merit Scholar scholarships (Grade 11) and to help prepare for the SAT.

North Hills will administer the PSAT/NMSQT on Saturday, Oct. 14. Students must register online by Monday, Sept. 4 at 11 p.m. No tests can be ordered after Sept. 4 for any reason.

The cost of the exam is $30. There is a $12 discount for any eleventh grade student who qualifies for free or reduced lunch.

NEW FOR 2023-24: The PSAT/NMSQT will be administered digitally and completed on the student's district-issued iPad. Additional details about this change will be shared closer to the test date.

To complete registration, students must answer all of the required questions. Students should use their NHSD Gmail account for registration. Registration is not complete until payment is submitted and students have printed or saved the PDF of the confirmation page provided at the end.

On the test day, test takers will be responsible for their own transportation. Additional information regarding test day procedures and schedules will be provided to registered students via email closer to the test date.

Additional information including test day instructions and regulations will be emailed to all registered students.

Please contact Mrs. Meghan Watelet at [email protected] if you have questions or require additional financial assistance.
