The SAT test is a college entrance exam that allows students to show schools what they know and how well they apply their knowledge in three main subject areas: critical reading, math, and writing. The PSAT test is also known as the National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. The PSAT also assesses students’ skills in these same academic areas.
High school sophomores must take the PSAT in the fall in order to qualify for the National Merit scholarships as well as to practice for the SAT. The PSAT lasts 2 hours and 10 minutes; it does not include an essay.
