SOPHOMORES: East High School will, again, offer next year's college bound 11th grade students an opportunity to take the PSAT exam. This exam is voluntary and will be given at East High School on Wednesday October 16, 2013 from 8:00 – 11:00 am. Students may choose to take the PSAT for one or more of the following reasons:
· College scholarship competitions based on academic skills – The National Merit Scholarship requires PSAT scores during the junior year in high school to enter the competition.
· To discover how their academic skills compare to those of other four-year college bound juniors
· Practice for the SAT admissions test
Although not limited to these criteria, the typical characteristics of a student who take a PSAT include:
· A junior in high school
· A 3.5 GPA
· Planning to attend a 4-year college
To register: go the East Homepage and click on "Register for the PSAT here" (hover over the initials "PSAT" for the hyperlink). Space is limited so register today.
