PSAT Testing: Grade 9-11 Students

October 12 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pm

October 12  is PSAT testing day for students in Grades 9, 10, and 11. 
9th grade students sit for a version of the test (the PSAT 8/9) that is similar but not identical to the PSAT 10/11 (which serves as the National Merit qualifying test for juniors). 

Students are pre-registered for the exam, which begins at 8AM and will conclude at around 1:00PM. Advisory teachers are proctors, and they will be framing the day for students as we lead into next week, so students do not need to prepare in any specialized way beyond good rest and a positive mindset. 

BHS is one of very few (and by my review, the only) high school in Maine that provides this annual opportunity for students to take the PSAT, which is very valuable as a lead-in to the SAT. We use the results in various ways to strengthen programming, and students will be pointed to PSAT resources that are high-quality, customized, and free to all. You can learn about many of these benefits at the following links:
