PSAT October 16, 2019: Juniors, Sophomores, & Freshmen:

Continuing with our commitment to our students’ college readiness and our ongoing improvement efforts, Woodinville High School will administer the PSAT/NMSQT (Preliminary Aptitude Test/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test) to freshmen who opted in and to all juniors and sophomores on October 16, 2019.

  • The $13 fee for juniors and sophomores is due September 20 and can be paid online through TouchBase.
  • Freshmen had the option to order a test booklet by paying the $13 fee by September 9.
    • If there are extra test booklets available after accommodating any newly enrolled WHS sophomores and juniors (and WHS freshmen who registered by September 9), Woodinville High School will offer a limited number of tests for non-WHS students during a September 27 through October 4 window on an in-person ONLY, first-come, first-served basis. WHS freshmen will be allowed to register during that window, as well; however, do note there is not a guarantee there will be extra booklets available to offer non-WHS students or freshmen who didn't register by the September 9 due date. The fee for WHS freshmen will remain at $13.  The fee for non-WHS students is $23.

Testing students are encouraged to read and familiarize themselves with the contents of the College Board's Fall 2019 PSAT/NMSQT Student Guide. The booklet will answer all of the student’s questions regarding the test. It also has a practice test, allowing students the opportunity to preview the exam.

If you should have any questions about the PSAT, please contact your counselor.
