Please eat a good protein breakfast. You should be able to get a little extra sleep!

   The PSAT/NMSQT includes 2 hours and 45 minutes of actual testing time and 15 minutes of breaks.  There will be tests in reading, writing and language, math (given in 2 portions – one with no calculator and one on which a calculator is permitted, although not required) and a variable section with questions from all three of those areas.   Regarding calculator use and approved calculators, the College Board states, “All questions can be solved without a calculator, but a scientific or graphing calculator is recommended [for the portion of the math test on which a calculator is permitted]…….Students are encouraged to bring their own calculators, you will not be allowed to share a calculator.

Please see the attached list of calculators that ARE ALLOWED on the PSAT/NMSQT Math Portion that permits calculator use. All scientific calculators are acceptable to use on the PSAT/NMSQT.  Any four‐function calculator can be used (though not recommended).
