The PSAT 10 is the same test as the PSAT/NMSQT, offered at a different time of year: While the PSAT/NMSQT is given to 10th and 11th graders in the fall, the PSAT is given to 10th graders in the spring.
The PSAT 10 is part of the College Board’s SAT Suite of Assessments. Like the PSAT/NMSQT, the PSAT 10 can help educators track student progress.
Here are some reasons for schools to give their students the PSAT 10:
- The test offers students opportunities to earn scholarships and academic recognition.
- Students can use their PSAT 10 scores to get free personalized practice for the SAT.
- PSAT 10 scores give students and their teachers information on what AP courses they will likely do well in.
- Their scores also give students information on what areas they’re strong in and what they need to work on.
