PSAT at Oakton

July 03, 2018

On Wednesday, October 10, students in grades 9 – 11 will take either the PSAT or the PSAT 8/9.

9th grade students will take the PSAT 8/9. Exams are paid for by FCPS.

10th and 11th grade students will take the PSAT. 11th graders who wish to take the exam and have it scored must pay a fee and complete this form by October 3 (though we prefer that the forms be handed in earlier!). Sophomores’ exams are paid for by FCPS.

FCPS pays for the freshmen and sophomores to take the exam, but juniors must pay a fee to have their test scored. If you are a junior who wishes to have his/her PSAT scored, please fill out our form and bring a check made out to Oakton High School to the School Counseling office no later than October 3. The form will be online when it is available.

Freshmen are automatically registered for the PSAT 8/9 and sophomores are automatically registered for the PSAT. Juniors must submit the form and pay if they wish to have their exam scored. Juniors who do not pay the fee prior to the exam day will not be able to have their exam scored by College Board.

If you have any questions about the PSAT, please contact Mrs. Brady, Assessment Coach, at mpbrady1@fcps.edu.

Requests for accommodations must be completed and received by College Board by August 21, 2018. Please contact our Assessment Coach, Molly Brady, at mpbrady1@fcps.edu no later than August 12, 2018 for help requesting College Board accommodations.

For ninth grade students with disabilities who have testing accommodations documented in a 504 Plan or an IEP, the school will provide accommodations such as extended time, writing in test booklet, braille and large print without applying to the College Board.

For ninth grade students who need accommodations beyond those listed above (extended time, writing in test booklet, braille, and large print), please submit an application to the College Board via Ms. Brady no later than August 17, 2018.
