PSAT - Practice SAT

The PSAT provides practice for the SAT and qualifies students with high enough scores for National Merit competitions. The PSAT will be administered Wednesday, October 24, 2018 at Wall High School.

While Wall High School Wall High School invites both sophomores and juniors to register and pay for the PSAT, we strongly advise juniors to take this test. The cost of the test is $16. 

Scores typically arrive on campus in December. Your counselor will distribute scores.. For information on score interpretation, students should visit CollegeBoard and login to "My College QuickStart" using the individualized access code printed on their score sheet. Additional resources:

  • View a quick guide to your scores
  • View a detailed presentation on interpreting your scores and using online resources to make the most of the data on your score report.

National Merit Semifinalists are announced in September. Approximately 1.5 million students in about 22,000 high schools take the PSAT. Of those students, about 16,000 are named National Merit Semifinalists and about 34,000 earn Commended designation.  


The ACT and the SAT are college admissions tests required by most colleges. Most college admissions committees will evaluate your application based on your best single-session score, so don't hesitate to send scores from multiple test days. For those of you who don't test well, you'll be glad to know that there are colleges that are test-optional ~ you may still need to take an SAT or ACT, but the score is not a critical piece of your application.

SAT ~ register online at sat.collegeboard.org
Cost is $47.50 without essay.
Fee waivers are available for students who receive Free or Reduced Lunch. See Ms. Barker for a waiver.
