PSAT Day - October 13th
The Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test is a great tool for students considering college. The PSAT/NMSQT measures critical reading skills, math problem-solving skills and writing skills. North Forsyth High School recommends that 9th and 10th grade students take the PSAT in order to receive feedback about strengths and weaknesses. 11th graders take the NMSQT to enter the competition for National Merit Scholar scholarships and to help prepare for the SAT.
Students in 9th and 11th grade at North Forsyth High School must register online. Please use the button below to access more information:
