Do you have to take the PSAT in 10th Grade?

Hi folks. So I heard from my counselor about taking the PSAT in 10th grade, but I'm not sure if it's a must or just a suggestion. Does anyone know if it's a requirement or is it something that's recommended for practice?

Hi there! It's great that you're thinking ahead about your testing schedule. To answer your question, taking the PSAT in 10th grade isn't a requirement, but many students find it beneficial for practice. It's a good way to get familiar with the format and types of questions you'll see on the SAT. Plus, you'll get a score report that can help pinpoint the areas you'll need to focus on when studying for the SAT. Think of it as a low-stakes trial run that can provide valuable feedback. If your schedule allows, and you feel comfortable doing so, I'd recommend giving it a try. Good luck!
