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 15, 2014. For the several years 90% or more Burlington High School seniors take the SAT exam. The PSAT is an excellent opportunity to prepare and gain an understanding of the SAT exam. Juniors are also eligible for a National Merit Scholarship depending on the score.
All sophomores will take the PSAT free of charge, however juniors MUST register and pay a fee of $25.00. The Guidance department highly recommends juniors take the exam again this year. Registration materials are being mailed on Monday 9/15/14, and students will also receive information in homeroom. We ask that Juniors register ASAP so they may pick up a PSAT study guide which provides valuable testing information.
The SAT will be re-redesigned beginning in the spring of 2016. This will impact students in the class of 2017 and beyond. Although the PSAT will be very similar to the PSAT in years past, parents and students will still have the ability to compare PSAT scores from this PSAT test to PSAT and SAT test rolling out next spring.
