PSAT Information 

PSAT Information for 9th Grade Students

For the first time ever, NAHS 9th grade students have the unique opportunity to choose between two different PSAT assessments:  PSAT 8/9, the first assessment in the newly designed College Board’s Suite of Assessments and the traditional PSAT/NMSQT for 11th grade students.  On Wednesday, October 14th, North Atlanta High School will administer both assessments.  

Students with Disabilities:  DSE students can take the PSAT 8/9 and use their current accommodations as no approval is needed from College Board; however, DSE students will be unable to take the PSAT/NMSQT with accommodations  because approval is required and the deadline to apply for accommodations has already passed.


Helpful suggestions when preparing for the PSAT:

1. Prioritize what you need to study.

2. Organize your time.

3. Categorize your materials into various study modes.

4. Study with a partner or small group (as needed)

5. Turn facts into questions and drill yourself.

6. On the night before the exam, get a decent amount of sleep.

7. Eat a healthy breakfast the morning of the exam.
