PSAT Information

PSAT Testing Information

The PSAT is a practice examination for the college entrance exam known as the SAT Reasoning Test. It measures critical thinking skills that are important for success in college, including critical reading, math problem-solving and writing skills. Taking the PSAT/NMSQT enables our students to get feedback about critical academic skills, seek information from colleges, enter scholarship competitions, practice for the SAT Reasoning Test, and initiate the college-planning process. 

  • Test Date: Thursday, October 29, 2020
  • Open to Juniors (11 Grade Students) only

General information about the PSAT/NMSQT test format is available on the College Board webpage (

Thursday, October 29, 2020 has been designated for asynchronous learning in FCPS high schools, so students who choose to take the PSAT/NMSQT will not miss synchronous learning time with their teachers.

We will share more details about test day schedules and bus transportation in the coming weeks. Students are encouraged to regularly check their FCPS Google school email for more information about test day starting Oct. 19 up to the day of the exam.

FCPS health and safety protocols for PSAT/NMSQT administration are available online (
