The SAT

The SAT® is a globally available test accepted by all U.S. and many international colleges and universities. It is offered at least seven times a year in the United States and U.S. territories, and up to six times a year internationally.

SAT Subject Tests

The SAT Subject Tests™ are hour-long, content-based tests that let students distinguish themselves in the college admission process by highlighting their strengths and interests in specific subject areas, including math, science, history, literature, and languages. For more information, visit satsubjecttests.org.

The PSAT/NMSQT and PSAT 10

The PSAT/NMSQT® and PSAT™ 10 are the same test, offered at different times of year. Part of the SAT Suite of Assessments and tightly aligned with the SAT, they serve as check-ins on student progress and pinpoint areas for development.

The PSAT/NMSQT is offered to 10th- and 11th-graders in the fall. Instead of delivering the PSAT/NMSQT to 10th-graders in the fall, some schools may deliver the PSAT 10 in the spring.

Both tests will support all students with a clear focus on the skills and knowledge that matter most for college and career success.

The PSAT 8/9

The PSAT 8/9 is the first test in the SAT Suite of Assessments. Using the same specifications as the SAT, the PSAT/NMSQT, and the PSAT 10, it establishes a baseline for college and career readiness as students enter high school. The PSAT 8/9 is designed for eighth- and ninth-graders.

Practice for PSAT/NMSQT and PSAT 10

To get ready for the PSAT/NMSQT or PSAT 10, students can visit collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/psat-nmsqt-psat-10/ practice for a full practice test and sample questions. There’s also a full practice test in the PSAT/NMSQT Student Guide.

Because the PSAT/NMSQT and PSAT 10 follow the same assessment design principles as the SAT, students can also use Khan Academy’s free personalized SAT practice resources at satpractice.org to get ready for the tests.
