Before Test Day

Getting test materials & preparing your school for the PSAT/NMSQT

The College Board depends on you and your assistants to administer the PSAT/NMSQT according to the PSAT/NMSQT Supervisor's Manual so that all students have the same opportunity to do their best. Thank you for the efforts you and your staff make to ensure a test administration that is efficient, secure, and fair for all students.

Conducting a successful PSAT/NMSQT administration takes careful planning. Here you'll find detailed information for the activities you need to do before the October test day.

Customized Entry Pages


The PSAT/NMSQT Supervisor's Manual provides important information on procedures to be followed before, during, and after administration of the PSAT/NMSQT.

With your test book shipment, you will receive at least one Supervisor's Manual per 25 test books ordered. You can also download a copy  (.pdf/1.3M).

Please set aside time before the test day to read the manual carefully so that all procedures will be familiar and easy to follow when you administer the test.
