2023-24 Grade 10/11 PSAT Assessment

On Wednesday, October 11, 2023, Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) will administer the PSAT to all Grade 10 students. Grade 11 students should consider registering to participate in the National Merit Scholarship. Grade 11 students/parents/guardians/caregivers, please reference the School Cash Online system to pay $15 as soon as possible to reserve your test. The PSAT provides an important measure of each student’s readiness for advanced coursework, college and careers, and preparation for future college readiness examinations as well as qualifications for important scholarships. Please note this year’s test will be offered electronically by the College Board so students must have their working ChromeBook on test day.
