PSAT National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test(NMSQT) 10/10/2018


The PSAT NMSQT test will be given at RMHS on Wednesday, Oct. 10th. This is a national date so we are only able to offer it on this day.  This exam is suggested for all Juniors as practice for their Spring SAT exam as well as for Juniors who are hoping to qualify for College Board’s National Merit Scholarship. Sophomores may take the PSAT NMSQT in October, however all 10th graders will also be required to take the PSAT this spring (as part of state mandated testing) at no cost. We do not suggest that 9th graders take this exam since it is geared towards Juniors and they will stay need to take the PSAT 9 in the Spring.


Students may only qualify for the National Merit Scholarship Program when they take the PSAT-NMSQT in the fall of their junior year and display high scores. We strongly encourage Juniors who tend to score in the 90% and above on standardized testing to take this exam.  


The fee for 2018 is $20.00. To Register, please use SchoolPay on-line or go your student may go to the fee window and pay by October 3rd. Students will receive a reminder a day before about arrival time, bringing a calculator and #2 pencils (not mechanical) and coming to the Auxiliary gym on that date. Doors open at 7:30 a.m., test begins promptly at 7: 45a.m.  Please register soon, we have a limited number of tests available!
