PSAT: Before the SAT or ACT

testATTENTION: Sophomores & Juniors 

The PSAT will be offered at WHS on

Wednesday, OCTOBER 13 during the school day.
 

Sophomores and Juniors planning to attend a 4 year college after high school will find this a great opportunity to get acquainted with the SAT. In mid December, each student receives their results online with additional resources to improve scores and prepare for the SAT.  Students receive an analysis of their answers and the original test question booklet that they used when taking the test.  This way, students have the opportunity to read each question and refer to their test analysis to deepen their understanding of their personal strengths and challenges on the test.  Students also have the opportunity to see further analysis of their results and more test prep information on the College Board website:
www.collegeboard.org/quickstart.
 
The PSAT is also the only test that qualifies JUNIORS for the National Merit Scholarship Program.
