Why should a student take the PSAT?
The benefit of the PSAT, in addition to National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (NMSQT) for juniors is the opportunity to take a test very similar to the SAT that will not show up on the SAT score report. The PSAT is like a scrimmage-it doesn't count, but you get test practice and score feedback that should help to plan for the SAT. While the SAT is no longer a requirement for admission for CSUs and UCs, out of state schools and private colleges still use the SAT as part of their admission process. For more detailed information, see the Academic Assessments page in the College planning section
What is the ASVAB Test?
The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) gives students a unique opportunity to learn about their interests and aptitudes in a variety of job related skills.
