This information was posted on Managebac and sent to parents with Korean and Chinese translations.
Please see the attached letter and information linked here outlining the standardized testing students will undergo in grades 9-10 on October 10th from 9- approximately 12:30pm. The PSAT is practice for the Scholastic Aptitude Test, a standardized American test that is required for entrance to most American universities. We do the practice test in grade 9-10 to give students exposure to such testing and as a continuation of the standardized MAP tests that they do in grades 3-8.
While we are a test centre for the SAT, we do no do any additional preparations for this test. Students should be able to achieve on the tests if they have the capability. Khan Academy runs online SAT prep sessions that have proven to be most effective for students planning to take the SAT which is usually in the summer of grade 10 or grade 11. This is done in advance of university applications which are completed in the fall of grade 12.
