    The PSAT is not a mandatory test, and it is predominantly for interested Juniors.  It is a gauge to see how prepared you are for the SAT test, should you choose to take that, and it is a mandatory test if you are going to try for the National Merit Scholar program.  Only the Junior year score will count towards that eligibility.



    Should You Take the ACT Again?
    Your students can take the ACT as many times as they like.
    They should consider retesting if:
    •  They had problems during any of the tests, such as misunderstanding the directions or illness.
    •  They ran out of time during testing.
    •  They are not satisfied that their scores accurately represent their abilities in the areas tested.
    •  They see a discrepancy between their ACT scores and their high school grades.
    •  They subsequently complete coursework or an intensive review in the areas covered by the ACT.
    •  They want to apply to a college requires or recommends the Writing Test and have not taken it.
    If they test more than once, they control which set of scores is sent to colleges or scholarship programs each time they test.
