PSAT (the practice test for the sat) test is taken in October. The PSAT is taken to qualify for the national merit scholarship. It is suggested that students are finished with algebra 2 and be an 11th grader, though they can take it at 10th grade. When taken before 11th grade it "doesn't count", but the following year the score will count for the purpose of scholarship eligibility.
