  • PSAT Day Reminder - October 12th!

    Greetings McDaniel 10th graders and families,


    This is a reminder that PSAT testing is next Wednesday, October 12th!  Here are a few things to keep in mind.

    1. Arrive at the McDaniel campus and be at your assigned room by 8:15 AM. Doors will close at 8:45am so please arrive on time. Otherwise, you will not be able to take the exam.

    2. Bring your Student ID card from this year or last year. 

    3. Smart watches and cell phones are not allowed during testing. You can leave them at home or they will be placed in a plastic bag and left with the proctor at the front of the classroom.

    4. You CANNOT eat during the test, but lunch is available until 1:30pm if students are interested in eating lunch once their exam is done. Breakfast will be available starting at 7:45am.

    5. You MAY bring a filled water bottle into the classroom to keep under your desk. We will have snacks for students during the short breaks.

    6. Please bring your calculator if you have one. Here is a list of approved calculators from CollegeBoard. If your calculator is not on the list, no worries! We’ll have one available for you to borrow.




    You can check your room assignments HERE by searching for your Student ID Number. If your name is not on the list, that means you are testing. If you believe your name should be on the list, please email Trinh Ngo, tngo@pps.net.


    If you have any questions, please contact me. Thank you!


    Trinh Ngo
