PSAT Testing Information and Reminders
As a reminder, 8th-grade students must be on time, and in proper uniform on testing day (Wednesday, November 30, 2022). Here is a link for a list of acceptable calculators. Students will not be allowed to bring any material in the testing room other than an approved calculator. All other materials MUST remain in their locker. Please check out the CollegeBoard resources (Student Guide and Practice Test) in preparation for the upcoming test. Reminder, PSAT scores are used as a qualifier for PGCPS High School Specialty Programs (How to Apply and FAQs). Students will be allowed restroom breaks during testing, however, the section timer is not paused for students using their testing time to go to the restroom. Only one student will be permitted to leave the classroom at a time. Students are not permitted to go to their lockers during breaks. There will be hallway monitors present. Please encourage your scholar to go to the restroom before testing and to be considerate of others if they go during testing. Emergency situations will be addressed as they arise.
