PSAT/NMSQT: WHEN TO TEST
The PSAT/NMSQT is offered in mid-October of every year. The upcoming PSAT/NMSQT is offered October 11, 2018.
PSAT/NMSQT: The Structure
The PSAT/NMSQT is made up of three tests: The Reading Test, Writing & Language Test, and the Math test (The math test has two sections with the latter section allowing the use of a calculator.)
The first part of the PSAT/NMSQT begins with a reading test that contains five unique passages:
Two passages cover science related topics
One passage covers US and/or World Literature
One passage covers one of the social sciences
One passage covers early US politics
The reading test is sixty minutes in duration and contains 48 multiple choice questions. A 10-minute break given in between the reading section and the upcoming Writing & Language Test.
The Writing & Language Test is composed of four unique passages with 44 multiple choice questions. The general breakdown of the question types focus on grammar and the ability to critically analyze the passages. Students have 35 minutes to complete this section.
The math test is split into two sections. The first section is 25 minutes long with 13 multiple choice questions and 4 grid-in questions. A 5 minute break separates the two math sections. For the second section of the math test, students may use a calculator to answer 31 questions in 45 minutes.
