Dear Parents and Guardians:
On October 12, HSI-Sugar Land will offer the PSAT to students in grades 9-11. The 9th graders will be taking the PSAT8/9, and the 10th and 11th graders will be taking the PSAT/NMSQT. The scores from these assessments will be used to
help determine class placement for next year and help students track how they are doing with regard to college readiness.
Additionally, for 11th graders, their scores on the test will determine their eligibility for scholarships, including the National Merit Scholarship.
Links for the student guides are below in the chart. Student guides contain detailed information about the tests for parents
and students as well as sample questions. Additional practice tests are available online at College Board
(www.collegeboard.org/psatpractice) and online at Khan Academy (https://www.khanacademy.org/).
On testing day, students need to arrive on time to school and are expected to wear their uniforms in accordance with the
dress code policy. Students are encouraged to get a restful night’s sleep before the test and to eat a healthy breakfast on
the day of testing. Additionally, please remind your child not to bring his/her cell phone or other electronic devices into
the testing room. As per College Board rules, students caught with these prohibited devices will have their scores
Lastly, on test day, HSI-Sugar Land will be closed to all visitors and parents, including lunch drop-offs, until testing is
complete. The estimated end time for testing is 1:30 pm.
Thank you for your continued support.
