The use of cell phones or other electronic devices is prohibited. Please do not bring them to the test room. Bring #2 pencils and a calculator; even though math questions can be answered without one. A basic scientific calculator will work (ex. TI-30X). See this link for more details regarding calculator use: http://www.collegeboard.com/student/testing/psat/about/calculator.html
Even if you are not a "breakfast eater" - please consider rising a little earlier and eating a good breakfast. Your mind will work a lot better if your stomach has something in it and it should go without saying that it is important to get a good night's sleep. Results will come back in early December and students will be notified when and how to get their score reports.
Testing time is about 4 hours this includes test breaks. After the test is over, there will be a ½ hour light lunch/snack break before dismissal at 12:40pm.
