When is the makeup day for the PSAT?

Life got in the way and I wasn't able to take the PSAT on the official date. Does anyone know if there's a makeup day scheduled, and how I can sign up for it?

I completely understand that sometimes unexpected events happen that can disrupt our plans. The PSAT is typically offered in the fall, with a primary test day and an alternate test day for those who cannot take the test on the scheduled date. The College Board sets these dates, and they usually fall in October. If you've missed both of these, unfortunately, there isn't an official makeup day beyond the alternate date.

That being said, all is not lost! I recommend speaking with your school's guidance counselor or the testing coordinator as soon as possible to explain the situation. Sometimes schools can make accommodations or provide advice on alternative options.

Also, keep in mind that the PSAT is a preliminary test and while it is useful for practice and qualifies you for the National Merit Scholarship, it is not used for college admissions. So, focusing on your SAT or ACT preparation moving forward will be essential. Best of luck, and don't hesitate to ask for help when you need it!
