A test fee of $20 must be paid at the time of registration and can be paid online through MySchoolBucks. You are NOT registered for the test until you have filled out the registration form AND paid at MySchoolBucks.   

The test will be administered at James Wood High School to JWHS students and JWHS zone homeschool students only.

Test Time: Testing begins at 8:00 a.m. Late students will NOT be admitted. Please check in with your 1st period teacher for attendance. 

The test is approximately 4 hours and students must be present for the duration of the test until they are dismissed. The PSAT is a Nationally Standardized test with timed sections. If a student must leave before the test is completed and they are dismissed then their test can not be scored. Please keep this in mind when scheduling appointments, etc.

Students can bring a snack to have during scheduled breaks (food/drink is not allowed during testing).

Students should bring at least two wooden #2 pencils and are allowed an approved calculator (calculators will NOT be provided).

All cell phones, smart watches and other electronic devices must be turned off and turned in at check-in. All devices will be returned to students upon dismissal from the test.
