The College Board will then issue a decision letter based on the accommodations requested and the documents provided to either approve or deny the request. Any approved accommodations will then be provided to all applicable PSAT, SAT, and AP exams for the remainder of a student’s high school tenure.

After the test, students will retrieve their online score report that will highlight opportunities to strengthen academic skills. Students can use the score report to show strengths and weaknesses pertaining to college readiness.
    • Prepares students for taking the SAT.
    • College Board’s BigFuture® app helps students plan for college, pay for college, and explore careers.
    • Juniors who score well may qualify for National Merit Recognition and Scholarships.
