District 86 administers the suite of SAT assessments to all District 86 freshmen, sophomores and juniors. The PSAT is a great primer for the SAT, and even the ACT. Freshmen take the PSAT 8/9, sophomores will take the PSAT 10 and juniors take the PSAT/NMSQT. PSAT/NMSQT is the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test and these are the scores that are used to identify National Merit Scholars and award merit scholarships
All students are automatically registered to take these assessments through District 86. Students do not need to take any other action to register.
