PSAT Information


Hunterdon Central will be administering the PSATs to all students in Grades 9-11 on Wednesday, October 12, 2022. The test is free of charge and will be given during the school day. Testing will begin in Block 1 and will take approximately 3-4 hours.


The PSAT 9 will be administered to all 9th-grade students. No registration is required, this is a non-accommodated test. The PSAT 9 is an important tool for all students and can help teachers pinpoint areas for student improvement. It is also the first exam in the College Board's SAT Assessments, provides a first experience taking this type of standardized assessment, and establishes a starting point for students who are considering college in their future plans.


The PSAT/NMSQT (Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test / National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test) will be administered to all students in Grades 10 and 11. The PSAT/NMSQT is an excellent diagnostic tool, provides real-time/real-place experience of a standardized assessment similar to the SAT, and is the qualifying test for National Merit Corporation scholarship opportunities for Juniors.

Students do not need to register for the test or take any action. Students with College Board-approved accommodations will test with those accommodations on October 12. Information regarding test rooms will be shared the week prior to the testing date.

All 10th and 11th-grade students may pick up a PSAT/NMSQT Student Guide that includes a Practice Test on a table located outside Room 801.

Detailed information on the PSAT is posted on the College Board Suite of Assessments Site. Select the PSAT exam you will be taking to access practice tests and other resources available to students and parents.
