2018 PSAT Test

On October 10, Otsego High School will be offering the PSAT for any interested sophomore and junior student. The PSAT measures what you learn in high school and what you need to succeed in college. There are many benefits to taking the PSAT. It will connect you to scholarship opportunities, from the National Merit Scholarship Program and scholarships through their partners. It can help you prepare for other nationally standardized tests like the SAT and the ACT. The PSAT provides students with excellent feedback on your results, including a breakdown of what you answered correctly and incorrectly. You will even receive free practice through Kahn Academy that is tailored to meet individual student needs.


In order to register for the PSAT, students need to complete the form below. There is no fee to take the test, and it will be offered here at Otsego High School. If you do register, you will be required to take the test. Registration will be available through May 25th. We cannot accept late registrations, as all tests are ordered in June.
