Pingry administers the PSAT to Form IV and Form V students each fall in preparation for the SAT administered by the College Board. Upon satisfactory completion of certain courses, students may choose to take the appropriate SAT Subject Test. Students should consult their teachers, advisors, or college counselors to determine the best time to take the ACT, the SAT, or a particular Subject Test. Additional information on the timetable for taking and preparing for subject tests may be found on the College Counseling web page.
All students enrolled in an Advanced Placement course are required to take the corresponding A.P. examination. Students who earn a grade of B or better in the first semester of the course and at least a 2 on the A.P. exam will receive the A.P. designation for the course on their transcript; otherwise, they will receive an Honors designation.
