Burlington High School will be a national testing center for the administration of the PSAT Exam and National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test on Wednesday, October 11, 2017. For several years 85% or more Burlington High School seniors take the SAT exam. The PSAT is an excellent opportunity to prepare and gain an understanding of the SAT exam. Juniors are also eligible for a National Merit Scholarship depending on the score. The Guidance department highly recommends juniors take the exam again this year.
All sophomores will take the PSAT free of charge on 10/11.
Juniors MUST register for the PSAT in order to take the exam at Burlington High School. The fee for juniors is $26.00. Upon completing payment students will need to print the registration form verifying they have officially registered. Students MUST bring their registration form to Guidance in order to receive a 2017 Student Bulletin.
It is important that juniors register early in the registration period to adequately prepare for the test. By reading the student bulletin thoroughly, paying particular attention to test directions, test taking tips and doing the sample practice test students will have a much better understanding of what to expect.

The on-line regular registration period ends Wednesday, October 4th. If a Junior misses the registration period, he/she may check with the Guidance Secretary the following day to see if there are available test booklets and space to accommodate a late registration. There will be an additional charge of $5.00 ($31.00 total) after October 4th.
