The PSAT is coming! The PSAT will be given on Saturday, October 18 from 7:45 am--11:00 am at Lincoln High. Sales begin 10/7 and end 10/16. Tickets are $22.00 and students should bring their cash or check to the bookkeeper(Ms. Loth) in room 200R, during both lunches, or after school. Students will then bring their receipt to Ms. Leick in the Counseling Center to register for the PSAT. If you have questions, please see Mrs. Schuster-Graff in the Counseling Center.
This test is designed specifically for juniors planning to attend a 4-year college. Reasons students might want to take the PSAT:
Although the PSAT is designed for juniors, sophomores and freshmen often take it in order to give themselves practice for the test during their junior year. As a result, they might be in the running for National Merit Scholarships, if they receive high scores on the PSAT as juniors. Again,the main purpose in taking the test would be to prepare students to do better on the PSAT when they take it in the junior year, increasing the possibility that they could qualify for a National Merit Scholarship.
