The Preliminary Scholastic Assessment Test includes the National Merit Scholarship Competition. It is important that juniors take the test so that they have the potential to qualify for National Merit Scholarship Corporation competitions, as well as to prepare for the SAT.

This test will be administered only once in October as determined by the College Board. Students are required to register and pay for these exams.
