Preliminary SAT (PSAT)/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (NMSQT)
The PSAT is administered in October. Every member of the sophomore and junior classes will take the exam at Peddie. Additional information is available through the College Board's web site (www.collegeboard.com) or in booklets available in the College office or Registrar's office.
Students should register for these tests online.
Growing more popular with each year, the ACT provides a wonderful alternative to the SAT. Many colleges and universities will take the ACT in lieu of the SAT Reasoning Test and Subject Tests. More and more students are submitting only the ACT for college admission consideration and so it has become an essential
test to add to the testing portfolio. The exam must
be taken with writing
. To register or obtain more information: www.act.org.
SAT & Subject Tests
SAT Reasoning Test (formerly SAT I)
We strongly encourage all juniors to take the SAT Reasoning Test in January. We feel it is important for students to take the SAT Reasoning Test three times, and the earlier date will allow for SAT Subject Tests and for any unexpected circumstances that may arise later. Taking the test three times is a rule of thumb, but certainly not a mandate. Discuss with your college counselor the relative merits of taking the test more or fewer times.
SAT Subject Tests (formerly SAT II)
Every spring, students will take the SAT Subject Tests. These are one hour exams given and the conclusion of specific courses. In recent years, we recommended that students take these tests when they and their teachers felt it appropriate.
