Where do students usually take the PSAT?

Hi, I'm trying to figure out the logistics for the PSAT. Do most students take it at their own high school, or do we need to find a testing center? Also, if our school doesn't offer it, where else could we take it?

Hey there! Most students typically take the PSAT at their own high school, as it's often administered to sophomores and juniors during a school day in October. The school coordinates with the College Board to offer this test. If, by chance, your school does not offer the PSAT, you can check with the College Board for alternative schools or testing centers in your area that do. Just head over to their website, look for the PSAT/NMSQT page and use the 'Search for Test Centers' feature. Keep in mind you’ll need to contact the test center to make arrangements to take the PSAT there, and be sure to do this well in advance since spaces can fill up. Also, it's a good idea to reach out to the guidance counselor at the alternate test center to confirm their procedures and any fees that might be associated with taking the test there. Hope this helps clear things up for you and best of luck with the PSAT!
