Preliminary SAT (PSAT)/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (NMSQT)
Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) is pleased to announce plans to offer the Preliminary SAT (PSAT)/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (NMSQT) to students in grades 10-11 and will be administered on Wednesday, October 12, 2022. The test will be free of charge to enrolled FCPS students.
Students with disabilities who have testing accommodations documented in a 504 Plan or an individualized education program (IEP) may be eligible for testing accommodations on the PSAT/NMSQT. The College Board must approve a formal request for each student. If the student already has College Board accommodations approved from a previous PSAT/NMSQT, PSAT 10, SAT, or AP test, then no further action is needed. Once instated, accommodations remain in place for all College Board testing. The Accommodations Process for College Board Testing webpage provides instructions on how to request College Board testing accommodations, including the required input and consent forms (Enclosures 2-3). To request new or amended College Board accommodations for the October PSAT/NMSQT, return the input and consent forms to the school by August 9, 2022. When returning forms, deliver to: ATTN: Tamika Thomas-Covington Bryant High School 2709 Popkins Lane Alexandria, VA 22306 OR @email
