Practice SAT and ACT exams are different from the standardized Preliminary SAT (“PSAT”), an exam also known as the PSAT/NMSQT® (National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test), where the highest achievers can earn National Merit scholarships.  IHS administers the PSAT once each academic year in the fall, during the school day (usually on a Wednesday in October).  This will be mentioned in the IHS Weekly Bulletin.  More information about the PSAT is available on our FAQs.
