PSAT/NMSQT INFORMATION

What is the PSAT?
It is the practice exam for the SAT (and for juniors, it is the qualifying exam for the National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test).
 
Who should take the PSAT?
All BCHS students except current seniors (9th-11th grade)-thinking about attending a four-year college after graduation will benefit from this practice exam.

Bear Creek is holding the PSAT on Tuesday,  October 25, 2022.  Reporting time is 8:30 AM
 

TWO ALTERNATE DATES ARE AVAILABLE BUT WILL NOT BE HELD AT BCHS:  WED. 10/12 OR SAT. 10/15.  YOU MAY CONTACT OTHER DISTRICTS/SCHOOLS TO INQUIRE ABOUT AVAILABILITY FOR THESE DATES.

How much does it cost and where do I sign up?

The exam fee is $20.00.
Because we have a limited number of exams, the sign-ups are first-come, first-served.   Sign ups and payments are made through the BCHS WebStore.  Once you register, bring your receipt to the Counseling office to receive your practice guide. 

How do I prepare?
Read your practice guide for help with preparing for the exam.  You should also visit www.collegeboard.com for additional preparation, not only for the PSAT, but for the SAT.  Another resource is Khan Academy.
