PSAT / NMSQT Anticipated Testing Dates

Unlike other standardized tests, the PSAT is only offered once a year. Your school will choose which day it will administer the PSAT, with most schools choosing the primary test date.

If you miss that test date, it’s still possible to make up the PSAT by writing to National Merit.

The PSAT is important as preparation for the SAT and as the way to qualify for National Merit. To help yourself do well on the exam, you can become familiar with the test, create a study plan, and take practice exams.
