The PSAT/NMSQT® is a preliminary version of the SAT®. The  PSAT™ helps prepare students to take the SAT® and is an asset for guidance with potential scholarships.


PSAT™ Exam Preparation

The PSAT™ is a long and comprehensive exam and covers areas math, writing, language and reading skills typically learned by the 10th grade. Being the first exam of this type for most students, it is often very difficult and can be an intimidating assignment for the student.

The Erasmus Center teachers are here to help with the test preparation but also to make the student feel at ease with the test. We will create an individual plan to guide you thru the key portions of the exam – working on each critical area – but also teaching the student how to take the exam and not become overwhelmed.

Our PSAT™ preparation is individualised to your learning needs based on a free diagnostic exam and our Educational Consultant’s assessment.

Erasmus Center also offers Free Seminars on test topics such as the SAT® and ACT®, writing workshops, and admissions programs that would be of interest to a PSAT™ student.
