2016 PSAT Scores

On Monday December 12, students who provided their email address on their PSAT/NMSQT answer sheet will receive an email reminder from the College Board explaining where and how to view their scores.

Students can set up a free College Board account at any time. If a student doesn't see their scores when they log in, email your School Counselor for an access code.

You're also encouraged to create a Khan Academy account at satpractice.org and link it to your College Board account to get free, personalized practice for the SAT.

Paper score reports and test booklets will be returned to students in January.
