          PSAT/NMSQT

          The Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) is a program cosponsored by the College Board and National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC). It's a standardized test that provides firsthand practice for the SAT®. It also gives you a chance to enter NMSC scholarship programs and gain access to college and career planning tools.

          The PSAT/NMSQT measures:

          · Critical reading skills

          · Math problem-solving skills

          · Writing skills

          You have developed these skills over many years, both in and out of school. This test doesn't require you to recall specific facts from your classes.

          The PSAT/NMSQT will be administered on Saturday, October 19, 2019 beginning at 8:00 AM. Juniors and Sophomores who wish to take the PSAT had to be registered in the Guidance Office by June 1, 2019. Since there are a limited number of the tests available, any student who has not registration will be able to on a first come/first serve basis by Friday, September 6, 2019. The cost of the test is $25.00. Cash, check, or money order will be accepted. Checks can be made out to “Valley View Guidance”. The student will receive a practice booklet at the time of registration.

          The SAT Subject Tests

          Subject Tests are hour-long, content-based tests that allow you to showcase achievement in specific subject areas where you excel. These are the only national admission tests where you choose the tests that best showcase your achievements and interests.

          SAT Subject Tests allow you to differentiate yourself in the college admission process or send a strong message regarding your readiness to study specific majors or programs in college. In conjunction with your other admission credentials (your high school record, SAT scores, teacher recommendations, etc.), they provide a more complete picture of your academic background and interests.

          Some colleges also use Subject Tests to place students into the appropriate courses. Based on your performance on the test(s), you could potentially fulfill basic requirements or receive credit for introductory-level courses.

          There are 20 SAT Subject Tests in five general subject areas: English, history, languages, mathematics and science. Visit collegeboard.org to try the free practice questions or download the Getting Ready for the SAT Subject Tests practice booklet.

          Please check www.collegeboard.org for SAT Subject Test dates.

          Applying to College

          2 years ago

          Seniors who wish to apply to college, technical school or trade school should be preparing their applications now.  You can begin by researching and visiting the colleges you are interested in.  Take advantage of the OPEN HOUSES that the colleges will be having this Fall.  Some dates are posted on the Guidance bulletin board near the cafeteria, or you can look on-line at your college of interest. 

          Most colleges now are requesting that you apply on-line.  Some even waive the registration fee if you do.  On-line applications need to be followed up with the counselor form and high school transcript.  Students requesting transcripts MUST fill out a Transcript Release Form.  The form can be obtained in the Guidance Office and must be signed by BOTH the student and their parent.  Students needing Letters of Recommendation are asked to pick up a Recommendation Request Form in the Guidance Office.  They are to fill it out and give it to the teacher(s) they are requesting a letter from.  When the teacher has completed the letter, they are to give the student the letters in sealed envelopes.  Please make sure you tell your teacher how many letters you will need. 

          In order for the Guidance Office to process applications, please allow 2 – 5 days.  Postage will be required for us to mail out applications, counselor forms, letters of recommendations, and transcripts.  We try to group all of the letters and forms together so the college will receive everything together.  Depending on the number of papers in an envelope and the size of the envelope, we will need up to four postage stamps per college.
