The PSAT/NMSQT measures critical reading skills, math problem-solving skills and writing skills. Brookline High School recommends that juniors take the PSAT/NMSQT in order to receive feedback about strengths and weaknesses in verbal and mathematical abilities and be able to compare their performance with that of thousands of juniors across the country who also take the test. The PSAT helps prepare students for the SAT later on in their school experience. Lastly, juniors are also automatically entered into the National Merit Scholarship competition.
For the 2017 PSAT/NMSQT, students at Brookline High School will be registering online. This registration will take a few minutes and can be completed from any computer with internet access. Here is the link: www.TotalRegistration.net/PSAT/220445
Brookline High School is excited to offer families the convenience of paying exam fees online at the time of registration. The cost to take the PSAT is $20. Please be sure to have a debit or credit card available before beginning registration. Paying online is a great way to make sure that payment has been made while avoiding mailing payment. As a junior, if you feel you qualify for a fee waiver, please indicate that on the online form or see your counselor or Ms. Castellano in the Main Guidance office.
