Juniors and sophomores will take the PSAT Oct. 15.
For most sophomores, it will be the first time taking the test.
Juniors will have a chance at achieving National Merit Semifinalist status, which is given to students with scores in the highest 1 percent for their state.
“I thought it was harder than I expected when I took it last year,” Jon Nelson ’16 said. “It matters a little bit [taking it as a junior] because of the National Merit.”
