PSAT/SAT/ACT TEST DATES
The PSAT/NMSQT (Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test) is the first major screening test for most college-oriented students. The test measures critical reading, math and writing abilities that are important for academic success in college. 11th grade students taking the PSAT test will be considered for National Merit Scholarship/recognition. PSAT, SAT, and ACT test dates are listed below. All dates for SAT testing are included in the booklets, “Taking the SAT…The Official Guide to the SAT” and the “Official Registration Bulletin” available in the PPS office. SAT scores are an important component in college admissions and post-secondary college scholarship opportunities.

How to apply for testing accommodations for the PSAT and/or SAT tests on these dates: The College Board provides a broad-range of accommodations to eligible students. Accommodations must be applied for and approved before they can be used. The first step of the process is to contact the school counselor for a Request for Accommodations Consent Form which is available on the BCTHS website.
Deadlines for Submission: Reviewing accommodation requests takes approximately seven weeks, therefore, students are urged to start the process during freshman year.. Students who receive accommodations can use them throughout their high school careers. Once approved, it is not necessary to reapply. Questions should be directed to guidance counselor, Mrs. Ponist firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at 215-949-1700 ext. 2163.
