On Wednesday, October 16th Da Vinci Design’s 10th and 11th grade students will take the Preliminary SAT exam. The exam will take place in the morning, during school hours. To prepare for the exam, students will be given study guides on 10/7 and 10/8. They can also register for free webinar classes on the Method Test Prep website: methodtestprep.com/psatweek/
By taking the PSAT, the students may qualify to enter competitions for prestigious scholarships and participate in recognition programs. Please visit the following link for more details: www.collegeboard.com/student/testing/psat/about/scholarships.html Scholarships are only available for 11th grade students as part of the NMSQT, National Achievement or National Hispanic Scholars programs. For 10th grade students, it is ONLY a practice exam and the scores will not be officially recorded anywhere via the College Board.
Da Vinci asks that all students pay $14 to take the PSAT. They can do so by visiting this link davincischools.org/collegepsat.shtml or by paying Maria Beltran in the front office.
If the students use the test booklet provided by the College Board to take the PSAT practice test, they can get the answers to the practice test on this website: www.collegeboard.com/psatpractice/
