Digital PSAT Replaces Paper in Fall 2023
This October, the PSAT/NMSQT will be administered in Fairfax County in a digital format. Some testing accommodations are administered differently for digital tests than for paper/pencil tests. See information about PSAT testing and accommodations for students with disabilities.
PSAT/NMSQT and SAT School Day
The district will offer access to the PSAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (NMSQT) and SAT School Day for rising 10th through 12th grade students at no cost to families. Exams will be held at each high school on October 11, 2023.
Because these exams are operated by the College Board, students do not automatically receive testing accommodations or supports.
- If you have a student with disabilities entering 10th, 11th, or 12th grade next school year, please review the accommodations request process and return forms to the high school by August 8 if you wish to request new or revised College Board testing accommodations.
- If you have an English learner student entering 12th grade next school year, please review the EL support request process and return forms by August 8 if you wish to request EL supports for the October 2023 SAT School Day.
