PSAT offered at Hamilton Oct. 18

The PSAT (Practice SAT I) will be given Oct. 18 from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. at Hamilton High School, W220 N6151 Town Line Rd., Sussex. The test provides collegebound juniors an opportunity to experience and practice taking a shortened version of the SAT I. The SAT I can be used for admission to the University of Wisconsin System, although the ACT is preferred.

For juniors, the PSAT is the only route of entry to the National Merit Scholarship Competition (NMSC) and may be required for other scholarships. Sophomores interested in entering the NMSC next year may want to take the PSAT for practice.

Students have until Oct. 10 to register in the Guidance Office. The $11.50 test fee is payable at registration.
