PSAT 8/9

 

 

The Practice SAT (PSAT 8/9) for 8th grade students will be given the morning of December 5, 2018. This test comes from College Board and provides indicators in many areas. PSAT 8/9 is used for: 1. Acceptance into PGCPS Specialty High School Programs (Science and Tech, Aerospace Engineering, etc.) 2. Provides areas of strengths and growths for which to improve in an effort to be prepared for the SATs. 3. PSAT 8/9 is also a predictor of success in High School Honors Courses and AP courses at CMIT High School, and is one piece of data used for placement (amongst others). CMIT North Middle School prepares students for the PSAT 8/9 through the standard curriculum and does not stop to prepare solely for the test. Parents are encouraged to utilize the following resources in their spare time to practice and prepare.
