The Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) is a program cosponsored by the College Board and National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC). It is a standardized test that provides firsthand practice for the SAT. To enter the competition for scholarships from NMSC, students typically take the PSAT in the 11th grade. NMSC scholarship programs allow you to gain access to college and career planning tools.
The curriculum covers mathematics, critical reading and writing.
