PSAT/NMSQT stands for Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. It's a standardized test that provides firsthand practice for the SAT Test. It also gives students a chance to enter National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) scholarship programs when they take it in their junior year. The PSAT/NMSQT measures critical reading skills, math problem-solving skills, and writing skills. You have developed these skills over many years, both in and out of school. This test does not require you to recall specific facts from your classes. 10th and 11th grade KHS students take the PSAT test. Pick up the Official Student Guide to the PSAT/NMSQT from your guidance office.

The district will be paying the test fee for KHS 10th and 11th graders. High scores on the PSAT will allow juniors to qualify for the National Merit Scholarship Progream. Homeschooled students who live in the Klein High School attendance zone can register to take it but must register with Mrs. Pennington in room 110 by September 26th. When registering, you must bring proof of residency (gas, water or light bill OR a signed lease are the only forms of proof accepted). The cost of the test is $15—only cash, *check, or *money order (*made payable to Klein High School) will be accepted.

Testing Date: October 15, 2014

SAT Information & Registration
The SAT is a globally recognized college admission test that lets you show colleges what you know and how well you can apply that knowledge. It tests your knowledge of reading, writing and math — subjects that are taught every day in high school classrooms. Most students take the SAT during their junior or senior year of high school, and almost all colleges and universities use the SAT to make admission decisions.

Taking the SAT is the first step in finding the right college for you — the place where you can further develop your skills and pursue your passions. But SAT scores are just one of many factors that colleges consider when making their admission decisions. High school grades are also very important. In fact, the combination of high school grades and SAT scores is the best predictor of your academic success in college.

Paper Registration booklets and review booklets are available in the counseling office.
