The Preliminary SAT is a great tool for 11th-grade students considering college. The PSAT measures critical reading skills, math problem-solving skills and writing skills.

Online Exam registration will begin on Thu, Sep 2, 2021 at 5:00 PM and end on Tue, Oct 12, 2021 at 11:59 PM. In order to register, students should visit
