Registration is open for Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test

The Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test is a great tool for students considering college. The PSAT/NMSQT measures critical reading skills, math problem-solving skills and writing skills. Burnsville High School (BHS) recommends that students take the PSAT/NMSQT in order to receive feedback about strengths and weaknesses, enter the competition for National Merit Scholar scholarships (11th graders) and to help prepare for the SAT.

For the 2021 PSAT/NMSQT, students at BHS will be registering online. This registration will take a few minutes and can be completed from any computer with internet access.

Online Exam registration opened Tuesday, Sept. 14 and will end Monday, Oct. 11 at 11 p.m. In order to register, students should click on the link provided on the school website or visit to register. To complete registration, students must answer all of the required questions. Registration is not complete until students have printed the pdf of the confirmation page that is provided at the end.

BHS is excited to offer families the convenience of paying exam fees online at the time of registration. Please be sure to have a debit or credit card available before beginning registration. Paying online is a great way to make sure that payment has been made while avoiding mailing payment.
