The Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test, otherwise known as the PSAT, took place this past Wednesday October 11, 2017.  This test gives 9th through 11th grade students a chance to prepare for their SAT in their junior year.  The PSAT consists of both a math and an English portion, and takes up most of the day in which the students take the test.  Students use the PSAT as a way to prepare themselves for the way they will be tested, and to learn how the test will be administered in their junior or senior year.

The PSAT is a very important test for students to take; such as it prepares students for the real test.  Preparation is key to scoring well in the rigorous and difficult test.  Some students prepare for the test for, “at least for an hour and a half each day for two weeks,” said sophomore student Madison Dong.  After taking the test, sophomore Apollo Mitchell stated that it’s important to prepare for the PSAT, “just to brush up on math and grammar.”  Overall, the students of Modesto High are very confident in their skills in the PSAT and can’t wait for their scores to be released.

The PSAT that took place at Modesto High School began at 8:15 am on Wednesday October 11th, 2017, and concluded at 11:44 am on Wednesday October 11th, 2017.
