PSAT Timing: When does it usually start?

This might be a dumb question, but I can't seem to find a straight answer online — what time does the PSAT typically start? I'm trying to plan my schedule and just want to make sure I'm prepped and ready to go on time.

Not a dumb question at all! The PSAT typically starts in the morning, with most schools beginning the test between 8:00 and 9:00 AM. That said, the exact start time can vary depending on your school's schedule, so it’s best to check with your school's guidance office or the coordinator in charge of the PSAT for the specific time the test will begin at your location. Also, remember to account for any pre-test instructions or setup, which means you should aim to arrive at least 30 minutes before the scheduled start time. This will give you a comfortable buffer to settle in and alleviate any last-minute stress. Don't forget to have a good breakfast that morning and bring all the required materials, like your admission ticket and photo ID. Best of luck with your preparation!
