    Looking at Northwetsern's NUMATS site....

    PSAT 8/9

    NUMATS utilizes the PSAT 8/9 test, developed by College Board for students in grades 8 and 9, to determine the abilities of students in grades 3 through 6. PSAT 8/9 includes a Reading Test, a Writing and Language Test and a Math Test. Registered students arrive to assigned test center at 8:00 a.m. The test takes 3–3˝ hours to complete. A non-Saturday test date is available for all students. Those who request this test date for religious reasons and submit a letter from clergy will qualify for priority seating.


    I wonder if Davidson is going to change the requirement from the Explore to PSAT 8/9 since the Explore test is no longer available...

    How do you sign up for the PSAT 8/9? Is it directly through the College Board or through a school? Do you get paperwork from the College Board to apply?

    It's also replacing Explore for the Rocky Mountain Talent Search.

    Does anyone know if students will get a practice test for PSAT 8/9?

    And does anyone know if students will get question-and-answer packet afterward for PSAT 8/9?
