PSAT test on October 24
On Wednesday, October 24, 2018, all of Scottsdale Unified School District’s sophomores will take the PSAT assessment. We feel strongly that this test will provide parents, students, and the District with valuable information concerning your student’s academic progress and potential. Since it is so important that all eligible sophomore students in the District have access to this opportunity, the PSAT is being offered free of charge, during the regular school day. Sophomores are automatically registered – there is nothing you need to do.
The PSAT assessment on Wednesday, October 24, 2018 is availible for juniors interested in qualifying for the National Merit Scholarship Program. A limited amount of extra tests are availible. Please register and pay $20 in the bookstore.
On test day, please arrive prepared by following these guidelines:
- Be in your assigned testing room by 7:40am.
- Bring your Student ID.
- Bring standard #2 pencils. Mechanical pencils are not allowed.
- Bring a College Board approved calculator (See p. 27 in the Student Guide.)
IMPORTANT NOTE: Test questions are designed to be answered successfully without a calculator, if you do not have an approved model.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Electronic devices of any sort will not be allowed during the testing session, even if you have finished the exam.

PSAT testing will start promptly at 7:45 a.m. and lunch will be available for testers.
Busses will make a second run four hours after the usual time for students who are not testing.
Non-testers should eat prior to arriving on campus.
