• PSAT:

    The PSAT is offered annually in October.  

    While the PSAT/NMSQT is a tool used to prepare for the SAT, there are a number of resources we recommend Sophomores and Juniors utilize for test prep: 

    *College Board website- Taking a full-length SAT practice test is one of the best ways to simulate test day. Eight official SAT practice tests are available for free, both online and on paper. Created by the makers of the SAT, each practice test has the same types of questions you'll see on test day. Six of the practice tests have even previously been given as actual SAT exams.

     *Take free SAT practice tests online with Official SAT Practice on Khan Academy®. Your answers will automatically be scored at the end of your test, and the timer will keep you on track with section time limits.

     *The Central Bucks School District offers E-Prep, a free standardized test prep and practice program for the PSAT, SAT and ACT to all its students. Students are automatically registered for this program; registration information is as follows: username is the student email address, and password is East2023 for class of 2026 students, and the password is East2022 for the class of 2025 students.  If students cannot find the email or have problems logging in, please stop by the East library.

    SAT and/or ACT: College-bound juniors should plan to take two tests, an SAT and an ACT during the second semester of 11th grade. Students may need to test in the early months of the second semester in order to allow for scores to be returned in a timely fashion. This way they may make an informed decision regarding future standardized tests. Students may want to sit for additional standardized tests either late in the junior year or early in the senior year so they may further improve their scores. The Guidance Department bases its recommendations upon the individual testing needs of each student. For specific information, please see your individual counselor.
