Register for the PSAT
Diman will be offering the PSAT assessment on Saturday, October 14, 2023 to juniors and sophomores who are interested and would like to sign-up for the test. Register here.
The PSAT is a practice exam that allows students to prepare for the SAT exam which juniors should be taking in the Spring of 2024. The content on the PSAT is very similar to the SAT and is made up of Reading, Writing, and Math sections. Although many colleges are now “test-optional” and the SATs are no longer an admissions requirement, juniors may be considered for the National Merit Scholarship, based on their performance on the exam. Some colleges also give scholarships to students who achieved a particular score on the PSAT.
All students interested in taking the PSATs must register before Friday, October 6th by filling out the Google form below and submitting the $26 registration fee. Any student who has not paid their registration fee by this date will not be allowed to sit for the exam. Also, please note that there are NO REFUNDS for students who don’t show up on test day.
Payment can be made before school by seeing Mrs. Degagne outside the administration office between 7:00-8:00 AM. You can pay by cash or check and will receive a receipt after payment. Please see your guidance counselor if you're having a financial hardship to see if you may qualify for a fee waiver. Spaces are limited, so don't wait to register!
This year the test has gone digital, and is shorter and more adaptive than ever before! Students will be required to bring their chromebook, fully charged, on the day of the test.
The PSAT is now shorter with fewer questions, allowing more time for you to answer. The PSAT will start at 8:00am SHARP! If all goes as planned, we should be finished by approximately 11:00am.
As we get closer to the date of the test, students will receive more detailed information about pre-administration and other related testing information.
To practice for the PSAT, you can go to khanacademy.org or collegeboard.org and take full-length practice tests. Studies have shown that the more practice a student has on the SAT, the more their scores improve every time they take it!
Please see your individual guidance counselor with any questions.
