10th grade students will be taking the PSAT October 16. This is the first chance for students to practice taking a college entrance exam as it is the preliminary exam to the SAT. The purpose is to measure high school students' readiness for college. The PSAT is 2 hours and 45 minutes long and tests students' skills in reading, writing, and math. Be sure your student gets plenty of sleep the night before and eats a healthy breakfast the morning of the exam.
