PSAT Test Day Information

This information is for students who have already registered and paid for the PSAT at Frederick High School.  If you have registered but not yet paid, please access school cash on line and pay for your test.  Students who have not paid will not be admitted to test.

Test Day and Time

The PSAT will be administered on Wednesday, October 14, 2020. Students will begin testing at 8 am and should be finished testing at approximately 12 noon.

Students must arrive at the building between 7:15-7:30 am.

Students who requested bus transportation, please check Schoology tomorrow, October 7th, for a message about Bus stop pick up/Drop of information.

Arrival

It is important that students arrive at the school no later than 7:30 am so that we can begin testing at 8 am.  Students can expect to wait in line outside of the building as they are checked in.  Students who arrive after testing has started will not be admitted. While standing in line, please be sure to maintain proper social distancing.

To assist with social distancing guidelines, students will report to separate entrances of the school, based on their last names (see chart below).  Students will be informed of their testing room upon check-in at their designated entrance.  Staff members will be outside to assist students in finding their correct entrance and entrances will be labeled.
