PSAT October 11, 2017


PSAT Information for Hamilton Students and Families

The PSAT/NMSQT (Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test) will be administered on October 11, 2017. This test is open to Hamilton High School students only. The District pays for all 10th grade sophomores to take the test for free, and it is offered to both 9th grade freshman and 11th grade juniors for a cost of $16.00.  11th grade juniors who qualify for Free/Reduced Lunch can come to Room 503 for a PSAT fee waiver.  This year's test has passed, please see below for additional information.



What Scores will I receive?

In January, your school will receive your PSAT/NMSQT Score Report, which will be given to you in the following weeks. Your Score report will also include the NMSC Selection Index, which is calculated by doubling the sum of your Reading, Writing and Language, and Math Test scores. NMSC uses the Selection Index as an initial screen of the large number of entrants to it National Merit Scholarship Program. Once you get your score, visit studentscores.collegeboard.org to learn more about what these scores mean.


Online Preparations and Resources:

  • Go to Collegeboard.org/psatpractice for sample questions and practice test answer explanations.
  • Go to Collegeboard.org/psatscoring to get more information about scoring and linking to practices.

The College Office, Room 503, has extra copies of the practice test books.
