Burlington High School will be a national testing center for the administration of the PSAT Exam and National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test on Wednesday, October 14, 2009. For the past nine years 90% or more Burlington High School seniors take the SAT exam. The PSAT is an excellent oppurtunity to prepare and gain an understanding of the SAT exam. Juniors are also eligible for a National Merit Scholarship depending on the score.
Registered juniors can take the PSAT/NMSQT exam on Wednesday October 14, 2009. Testing will begin immediately after homeroom. The class of 2011 registration form was given to all junior’s during home room. The registration form can also be found by clicking here. Room assignments will be posted prior to test day.
Although you took the PSAT exam last year, the Guidance department highly recommends juniors take the exam again this year. The PSAT will identify acquired verbal reasoning, critical reading, math problem solving, and writing skills. The PSAT also measures knowledge and skills developed through years of study in a wide range of courses. The test offers a critical reading, mathematics and writing questions section. The information gained from the test can help assist in deciding on future courses and indentify areas of strengths and weaknesses. You may also find more information at by clicking here.
When you register you will receive a 2009 PSAT/NMSQT Student Bulletin which should be very helpful in answering many of your questions. Again the registration form can be found on the BHS Guidance web-site. Please feel free to make an appointment with your Guidance Counselor if you have any questions or concerns.
