It is not too late to sign up for next week’s Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT) day, according to Assistant Principal Tom Crumrine.
The original deadline of Sept. 27 has been extended to Friday, Oct. 5, so that juniors and sophomores who still wish to take the test next Wednesday, Oct. 11, can do so.
PSAT testing will take place on the fourth floor of the East building for any juniors and sophomores seeking to assess themselves as a student.
This event will be held during the school day from 7:45 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
There is a fee of $20 to register. If a student cannot afford the fee, there may be scholarships available.
Students interested can fill out registration forms found in any of the commons. Those who sign up will receive a full booklet of information and a practice test.
This test is mostly for juniors but sophomores can take this test too if there is room. Juniors get priority but in the past years the program has not had to turn away sophomores.
“Yes, I am planning on taking the test this year,” said tenth grader Baneen Alghadhbawi. She thinks that students should take it “so that we are prepared” for later tests like the SAT.
