The PSAT/NMSQT® is highly relevant to your future success because it focuses on the skills and knowledge at the heart of education. It measures:

  • What you learn in high school
  • What you need to succeed in college
  • The PSAT/NMSQT measures reading, writing and language, and math skills developed over many years, both in and out of school.
  • The PSAT/NMSQT does not ask for facts from literature, history, or science, or recall of math formulas, because it measures your reasoning and critical thinking skills.

You don’t have to discover secret tricks or cram the night before.
There is no penalty for guessing.
The test length is 2 hours, 45 minutes
