    About the test...

    The PSAT 8/9 is an exam intended to help eighth- and ninth-grade students plan a path to college. It is similar to other college entrance exams in the SAT Suite of Assessments, but it is important to note that it is not the same exam as the PSAT 10 or PSAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.

    One significant difference among the PSAT 8/9, the PSAT/NMSQT and SAT is that this exam will not directly affect students' college applications or scholarship opportunities. Instead, the goal is to expose students to the different kinds of questions commonly found on higher-stakes tests in the years to come. The exam is divided into three broad categories: math, reading, and writing and language. There is no essay section.

    Your results can forecast your high school trajectory: Understand that the PSAT 8/9 is not just practice for the PSAT/NMSQT and SAT. It can also provide insight into your overall readiness for high school curriculum.
