Important PSAT Notes
- The Educational Testing Service (ETS) will only permit a student to take the PSAT once per year.
- Consequently, juniors who take the test at Chatham High School on the Wednesday administration may not take the test on Saturday elsewhere.
- Juniors who opt to take the PSAT will have to pay the $18.00 fee on Pay For It . Students who are listed on Pay For It will be asked to stop by the School Counseling Office for an informational booklet.
- ETS will provide students with an online score report. Students who already have a College Board Account must use the email associated with that account when they grid their answer sheets. Students who do not have a College Board account will use the email that they provided on the PSAT answer sheet to create a College Board account.
Please contact your counselor with any additional questions.
- Test score ranges and student information are reported to colleges when a student answers yes to the student search question on any test administered by ETS. Juniors will be encouraged to consider the option to answer “yes” to this question, as this is a beginning step in the college selection process.
