It tests the same skills and knowledge as the SAT. PSAT8/9 helps students determine what they need to work on most so that they are ready for college. Aligned with SAT, it established a baseline for college and career readiness. The PSAT8/9 score reports will provide students early feedback on the skills and knowledge that matter most college and career readiness. You will learn detailed information on your child’s strengths and areas for growth.

PSAT8/9 scores will be useful for high school course selection and can lead savings from college cost. Practice exams and Sample questions are available online at the College Board website and Khan Academy:

https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/psat-8-9

Students also can share their PSAT scores with Khan Academy to create a personalized practice experience.
