PSATs

Sophomore students have  the opportunity to take the PSAT at North Penn High School. North Penn is offering this exam to all sophomores for $18. The exam is free for all juniors and your student will have the ability to test next year as well. It will occur on Wednesday, October 13th during normal school hours. Please note, it is an early dismissal day for students. Your student should arrive to school at normal time and be in their KT room by 7:21. They should be finished with the exam at 11:00. 

  1. It is a good indicator on how students will perform on the SAT.

  2. It exposes students to content and questions they will likely see on the SAT. 

  3. It provides student practice for the SAT.

To take the exam,  students must complete this Form by September 30th. You can pay online here http://www.payonlinenorthpenn.org or remit tangible payment to D103. No late registration will be accepted, as we have to order exams through College Board by this date. 

Students will test in their Knight Time location, unless they are currently receiving accommodations through a 504 plan or IEP. If this is the case, he/she must apply for accommodations through the College Board website or by picking up a tangible form from any Home Office. If students opt to complete the tangible form, they must submit it to Dr. Rattigan (Office D103) 4 weeks prior to the exam day (this is the same process for SATs and AP exams, FYI). If you need assistance with the process, please reach out to your counselor, case manager, or Dr. Rattigan.  Students will not receive accommodations for the PSAT if they do not get approved by Collegeboard.
