The Preliminary SAT, or PSAT, is a test administered by the College Board, sponsor of the SAT, that most students take in October or November during their junior year of high school, and possibly during freshmen or sophomore year.
Usually, the PSAT is offered on a Wednesday in October or November. In 2016, the dates the PSAT is offered will include Wednesday, October 19; Saturday, October 22; and Wednesday, November 2.
