2022 PSAT/NMSQT Information

  • Juniors

Glenbrook South High School will provide the opportunity for interested junior students to take The PSAT/NMSQT on Wednesday, October 12, 2022.

The PSAT/NMSQT is a two hour and 45 minute test that measures the reading, mathematics, language, and writing skills essential to college-level work.

The PSAT/NMSQT serves two main purposes:

  1. It is a practice test for the SAT. Glenbrook South will administer the SAT to all juniors on Wednesday, April 12, 2023. (Please note that scores earned on the PSAT/NMSQT are not used as criteria for college admission.)

  1. The National Merit Corporation uses the PSAT/NMSQT as the qualifying test for all students who wish to participate in its nationwide scholarship competition. Students who score in the 99th percentile of the PSAT/NMSQT qualify.

  2. Online registration can be completed by the student or parent/guardian through the e~Funds for Schools Payment Portal. Select Exam-PSAT/NMSQT under Optional Fees—this is a non-refundable fee. If you have questions related to the e~Funds for Schools Payment Portal, please review the e~Funds for Schools Payment Portal Guide

PSAT/NMSQT fees are waived for students who currently receive financial assistance.
