The PSATs are a practice test that prepares you for the SAT. Freshman take the PSAT 8-9 and Sophomores take PSAT 10. Junior year, you take the SATs. As a Senior you have the opportunity to retake the test to better your scores. The difference between the PSAT and SAT is that the SAT is used for college acceptance, while the PSAT is practice but also goes on your transcript.

The test will range from 2 ½ hours for PSAT 9 and up to 4 hours for PSAT 10. If the test is taken on a weekend, you could get your results within 4 to 6 weeks. However, on a week day it may take longer. Coming up on October 10, Northfield’s ninth and tenth graders will take the test and again in April. While you don’t have to take it, it is highly advised)

Advice from a Northfield teacher, Ms. Yacoubian (Integrated Math 2):

  • SAT practice app for both math and english – a question a day relating to the math and english section on the test
  • Do practice test online to better STAMINA
  • Practice booklets that have tests in it – time yourself to see how long it takes you to finish it
  • Try to do IB/Honors questions when given the option
  • Read the questions carefully (it is work you know how to do just worded differently) -take your time!

No matter what you do (or don’t do) to prepare…

…just do your best!
