Sophomores, juniors to take the PSAT

Teresa Suh

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.”
