PSAT Registration CLOSED

 Sophomore and Junior Parents/Guardians:

The Del Oro counseling team encourages all 10th and 11th grade students to take the PSAT, a preliminary version of the SAT that is only offered once annually. This year, the PSAT will be administered at Del Oro on Wednesday, October 16, 2019 starting at 7:50 am. The cost will be $26.00.

Students who register by the priority deadline of September 16th will be guaranteed an exam spot. After that date, students may register if space is still available until September 30th. Students can register for the PSAT online through the Del Oro Web Store or in person at our cashier window in the main hall of the Administration Building. Free PSAT study guides will be available in the counseling office and at the cashier window. 

Not only does the PSAT help prepare students to take the SAT or ACT, a high score on the PSAT can also lead to National Merit Scholarships and other awards.

How to Get Your PSAT/NMSQT Scores

Your PSAT/NMSQT scores are ready online. An email was sent from College Board to the email address you, the student, provided on your test answer sheet. The email gives instructions on creating your College Board account, going to your online score report, gives you your access code and how you use it to view your scores.  If you did not receive an email from College Board and would like to get your access code, please email Mrs. Fessenden at from your pushd email account or come see her in the Del Oro Counseling office.

The Practice SAT (PSAT) will be offered on Wednesday, October 10, 2018. This is the primary test date set by College Board for the nation.

The test is offered to freshman, sophomores and juniors. We highly recommend that juniors take the PSAT/NMSQT. Junior year is the only opportunity students have to qualify for the Nationl Merit Scholarship, based on there PSAT/NMSQT scores. 

There is a limited number of tests available and registration is first come/first serve basis. When available students can go to the webstore and pay for the exam online. Students will take the test in the morning of Wednesday, October 10, 2018 and continue with their school day when the exam ends.

What to bring:
  • Number 2 pencils
  • An approved calculator (we don't provide extra calculators)
  • Your home address (you'd be surprised how many students don't know their complete address, including zip code)
  • It can get cool in the gym and theater, so make sure to dress in layers.

Student will receive an email (that they listed on the PSAT/NMSQT) to access to their scores sometime in December 2018.
