The PSAT/NMSQT (Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test) will be given the morning of Oct. 19 in the MHS Cafeteria.
Typically, students who take this to qualify for the National Merit Scholarships are juniors in the top fourth of their class. Sophomores are allowed to take it for practice. Juniors are then eligible to compete for national scholarships offered by companies.
There is a list of participating companies printed in the official Student Guide to the PSAT/NMSQT that is given out to students when they register. Parents need to check with their companies to see if they participate in this scholarship opportunity.
The cost is $15. Students may sign up in the Counseling Office at MHS to receive further information. Students may begin signing up on Sept. 23.
