Practicing for the Practice

Written by Joey LeBlanc

Many students took the PSAT on the morning of Wednesday, October 14, 2015. The test lasted about four hours, making students miss nearly five periods of the day.

The PSAT stands for Preliminary SAT. This means that this test was not the actual SAT, and was not taken for a grade, just merely practice. Although this is not an actual test, it has many benefits for the students who took this assessment. The test will show colleges how much the students have improved and what their knowledge level is. It will let colleges know what major they want to study in and if that particular student would be of value at a specific college. This test also shows students what the real SAT will be like and how to study for it in the future.

All of the participating students took the test in the gym, which they paid $15 to sign up for. Some of the students even studied for the test. The PSAT helped many students prepare for the SAT coming up in the next few years.
