Finishing your College Profile
The "Finish" tab asks questions about other tests you may have taken or intend to take, and other "research only" questions.
Most students take the PSAT/NMSQT in fall of their junior year, but some take it sophomore year or earlier.
The PSAT/NMSQT provides good practice for the SAT Reasoning Test. It also gives you a chance to enter National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) scholarship programs. Learn more about the PSAT/NMSQT.
Advanced Course Work
Some colleges allow well-prepared students to skip required introductory courses and take advanced course work. This exemption is sometimes based upon the results of tests such as Advanced Placement or AP Exams, SAT Subject Tests, and CLEP.
Through college-level AP courses, you get the chance to try college-level work in high school; through AP Exams, you have the opportunity to earn credit or advanced standing at most of the nation's colleges and universities. Read more about AP Exams
