Students preparing for college admission should plan to register for the PSAT examination, offered to students in grades 10 and 11, or the SAT examination, available to students in grades 11 and 12. Both examinations assess students’ verbal and mathematics skills, helping to measure readiness for the demands of college-level work. Many colleges require SAT scores for admission; the PSAT is also recommended for students who wish to practice for the SAT, or who wish to be considered eligible for the National Merit Scholarship competition.
High school guidance counselors will provide eligible students information about exam registration and associated fees. Students with financial need may qualify for a fee waiver upon application.
The PSAT and SAT examinations will be offered at Jamestown High School on the following dates in 2015-16:
October 19, 2016
October 1, 2016
December 3, 2016
May 6, 2017
