Feeling lost about the PSAT/NMSQT registration process

Hey everyone, I'm a bit confused and could use some guidance. Could someone walk me through how to register for the PSAT? I'm not entirely sure where to start or what steps I need to follow.

Hello there! I completely understand that the registration process for tests like the PSAT can be confusing, especially the first time around. Generally, the PSAT is offered through high schools rather than individual registration. You'll need to talk to your high school counselor or another school official who can give you information about how the process of signing up at your school in particular works. Schools usually schedule the PSAT on a date in October, and many will start the registration process at the beginning of the school year, so it's a good idea to reach out early to make sure you aren't scrambling at the last minute.

Some schools automatically sign up all their students, so check with your school's policies, as you may not have to do anything on your own. If your school does not offer the PSAT, they should direct you to another school in the area that does.

Good luck preparing for the PSAT!
