Why are these exams important?
- The PSAT 8/9 provides the first year of data that is comparable across the College Board suite of assessments.
- The PSAT 8/9, PSAT 10, PSAT NMSQT, & SAT are very similar exams in both structure and questioning.
- Using their results from the PSAT 8/9, students can access customized guided practice in areas for growth in preparation for the PSAT 10, utilizing Khan Academy. See Collegeboard.org for more information about how to take advantage of this excellent free resource.
- The PSAT 8/9 gives the students the experience of standardized testing which cannot be duplicated in the normal day to day classroom. You do not want the first experience of this testing environment when you take your college entrance exam as a Junior.
