Image result for psat/nmsqt logo

Date: 10th Oct 2018

Time: 09:30 – 12:30 (Please come on time)

Venue: 4F SSC (Formerly Diploma Centre) 

 

For full details about PSAT/NMSQT, please visit the official website:

https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/psat-nmsqt-psat-10

Student Guide:

https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/pdf/psat-nmsqt-student-guide.pdf

How to get ready for test day:

  1. Ask your school counselor when your class will take the PSAT/NMSQT or the PSAT 10.
  2. Get a list of what to bring on test day and what to leave at home.
  3. Take a practice test to see what the tests are like and get a personalized skills workout. Click for free practice.
  4. Decide if you want to opt in to Student Search Service®.
  5. If you need College Board testing accommodations for students with disabilities, talk to your counselor.
  6. If you’re home-schooled or testing outside the U.S., find out what to do.

What to Bring

  • Two No. 2 pencils with erasers
  • An approved calculator
  • Valid school- or government-issued photo ID (for students not testing at their own school and home-schooled students). If unavailable, students can use a notarized College Board Student ID Form (.pdf/122 KB).
  • Social Security number (optional)
  • Epinephrine auto-injectors (e.g., EpiPens) are permitted without the need for accommodations. They must be placed in a clear bag and stored under the student’s desk during testing. For policies on other medications and medical devices, contact Services for Students with Disabilities.

What Not to Bring

  • Any devices, including smartwatches, that can be used to record, transmit, receive or play back audio, photographic, text, or video content
  • Protractors, compasses, rulers
  • Highlighters, colored pens, colored pencils
  • Pamphlets or papers of any kind
  • Dictionaries or other books—there are no exceptions, even if English is not your first language
  • Food and drinks—including bottled water—unless approved by the College Board’s Services for Students with Disabilities. Learn more about testing with accommodations.

Your school counselor can share a complete list of prohibited devices—just ask to see the Official Student Guide.

During the Test

You will be allowed to have only these items on your desk:

  • A test book
  • An answer sheet
  • No. 2 pencils with erasers
  • An approved calculator—during one of the math sections only

Turn Off All Electronic Devices

You’ll need to turn off all electronic devices during the test and even during breaks. This includes cellphones. Be sure to turn off your watch alarm, if you have one.

Why? Test centers are serious about security and quiet, so prohibited devices—which include cellphones, tablets, and MP3 players—must be turned off and put under your desk. Better yet: Leave them at home.

Really, Really Important

You will be dismissed immediately and your scores will be canceled if you use your phone or if it makes a noise—even during breaks. Your phone may also be confiscated and inspected.

California Institute of the Arts

CalArts has earned an international reputation as the leading college of the visual and performing arts in the United States. Offering rigorous undergraduate and graduate degree programs through six schools—Art, Critical Studies, Dance, Film/Video, Music, and Theater—CalArts has championed creative excellence, critical reflection, and the development of new forms and expressions.

The school has produced animators of many popular television shows. In the late 2010s, it became somewhat-notorious for teaching a signature animation style which can be found in popular television shows including Adventure TimeSteven Universe, and Gravity Falls. This has led to backlash from animation fans, as some have criticized the style for being lazy and saturating popular culture.
