Get Ready for New Data Layouts

Your school will receive test scores electronically. Download sample data files and file layout crosswalks, and get everything you need to implement the new fields, codes, and layouts.

Go to Electronic Score Data

Look Up Your School Code

To offer the PSAT/NMSQT or PSAT 10, your school needs an active six-digit College Board school code. Schools that offer the SAT or AP have one. If you need a code, call 609-771-7091.

K-12 Educators - PSAT 8/9

The PSAT 8/9 is a test that will help you and your teachers figure out what you need to work on most so that you’re ready for college when you graduate from high school. It tests the same skills and knowledge as the SAT, PSAT/NMSQT, and PSAT 10 — in a way that makes sense for your grade level.


Ordering the Tests

Educators: Order tests online. Students: Ask your school counselor when you take the PSAT 8/9.

Who, Where, When

  • Eighth and ninth graders
  • At school
  • Schools choose a date between Sept. 28 and Jan. 29 or between Feb. 22 and March 4 (view calendar)


The PSAT 8/9 establishes a baseline measurement of your college and career readiness as you enter high school. It also gives you a chance to preview the SAT, PSAT/NMSQT, and PSAT 10 and connect to AP courses.
