PSAT Information

  • PSAT

    Test Date - Wednesday, October 12, 2022

    Lambert High School is happy to provide an opportunity for students to prepare for the SAT through administration of the Preliminary SAT, also known as the PSAT/NMSQT® (National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test). The PSAT is a preparatory version of the SAT exam. You can only take the PSAT once per year. If you earn a high score on the PSAT your junior year, you could qualify to receive a National Merit Scholarship! Testing your skills in reading, writing, and math, the standard testing time for the PSAT is 2 hours and 45 minutes. The test consists of Evidence-based Reading, Writing and Language, and Math.

    The PSAT/NMSQT is scheduled to be administered at Lambert High School on Wednesday, October 12, 2022 from 8:25 am - 12:30 pm (students with accommodations may be finished closer to 2:00 pm).  If you want your child to take the PSAT/NMSQT, we ask that you register as soon as possible to avoid missing the registration deadline. All 10th Grade Students take the PSAT at no cost, as the PSAT is free for all 10th Grade Students in the State of Georgia.  10th Grade Students do not need to register on Total Registration!


    This is a Digital Learning Day for all high schools in Forsyth County. 






    NINTH GRADE STUDENTS - Freshmen may participate in the in-person College Board PSAT/NMSQT if they wish to. It is recommended that ninth graders complete the practice test virtually through Applerouth, because they will be able to take the PSAT/NMSQT for free during their 10th grade year at Lambert. Register for this FREE opportunity by viewing the Applerouth website and entering event code M519193. Ninth grade students who take advantage of this opportunity can complete the mock assessment at home and do not need to report to Lambert on 10/12


    Ninth grade students who do not wish to take advantage of the free virtual mock test through Applerouth can also participate in the College Board assessment at Lambert for a fee of $25 and register at Total Registration. It is our strong recommendation that students complete this assessment for free via Applerouth at home.

    FORSYTH COUNTY SCHOOLS HAS DESIGNATED OCTOBER 12TH AS A DIGITAL LEARNING DAY FOR ALL HIGH SCHOOLS. Students not taking the PSAT/NMSQT may stay home to work virtually, or they may come to school for virtual learning in supervised areas. Buses will run as normal and a "grab and go" lunch will be available to students that come to school for either testing or virtual learning.


    All Part-time and full-time Lambert HS Virtual Students are welcome to come to Lambert to take the PSAT!  Students MUST be at Lambert HS on October 12th by 8:25 am for this option.

    Testing Room assignments will be communicated to registered test-takers by Monday, October 10th (information will be posted near the main lobby/trophy cases and upstairs near the Media Center. English teachers will also be able to let students know room assignments). Virtual students testing can see their room assignments on test day.

    Home school students living in Forsyth County who are interested in taking the PSAT/NMSQT may do so this year at East Forsyth High School.

    • Students should report to their testing room by 8:25am.
