PSAT: The preliminary SAT will be given at Boiling Springs High School on
Thursday, October 29, 2020. By taking the PSAT, students practice for the SAT, compete for national scholarships, get mail from colleges and get feedback about important academic skills. The test measures critical reading, math and writing skills. Although the test is open to students in grades 9-11, juniors who intend to pursue post secondary education should plan on taking the PSAT this fall. After receiving scores in December, juniors are encouraged to register for a spring SAT test day. Sophomores may want to consider taking the PSAT this fall as extra practice and then again in the fall of 2021.
