PSAT

While the PSAT is not counted on college applications for admission, this preliminary version of the SAT is much more than a practice test. Also called the National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (NMSQT), this test is required to qualify for the elite ranking of National Merit Scholarship Finalist, National Achievement Scholarship Finalist, or Commended Scholar. Success on the PSAT can be a mark of distinction, making the candidate more competitive as well as opening the door for scholarship funding. The PSAT has four parts – Reading, Writing, Language, and Math – and an effective PSAT preparation course lays the foundation for subsequent success on the SAT and ACT.


ACT

The ACT is designed to measure what a student has learned in high school alongside what knowledge is needed to succeed in college. It measures grammar, reading comprehension, math, and science skills.  Colleges and universities use the ACT as one measure among many of a student’s readiness to do college-level work. The test is scored on a 36-point scale.  The composite score is an average of four section scores—English, Math, Reading, and Science—each of which are also scored on a 36-point scale. The optional Writing portion is also available for students applying to schools that require it.

The ACT is typically administered seven times a year in September, October, December, February, April, June, and July.


SAT

The SAT is designed to measure what a student has learned in high school alongside what knowledge is needed to succeed in college. It is comprised of four sections—Reading, Writing & Language, Math without calculator, and Math with calculator. Students receive a scaled score out of 1600, which is a combination of a verbal score and math score, each out of 800.  Many students will also take the Essay portion of the test as many colleges will require that section for score reporting.

In a standard school year, the SAT is administered on seven national test dates in October, November, December, March, May, June, and August.
