Is there an online option for taking the PSAT?

Hey everyone! With so many things accessed online these days, I was wondering if there’s a way to take the PSAT remotely? I’m not too keen on going to a testing center if I can avoid it.

Hello there! Currently, the PSAT is taken online, but it must be taken on your computer while you're physically at a designated testing center or at a participating school. This is mainly due to concerns about test security and the standardization of testing conditions. It's a bit different from some of the remote learning arrangements we've seen recently because standardized tests have very strict protocols to ensure fairness and reliability of scores.

I know it might not be the ideal situation for you, but taking the test in person is an opportunity to simulate the testing environment you'll encounter for future exams like the SAT or ACT. If you have concerns about going to a testing center, I'd recommend reaching out to your school counselor to explore any available options or accommodations that might make you more comfortable. Best of luck with your test preparation!
