Seniors wait in line in front of the big gym to take their SAT.

Sophomores, juniors and seniors lined up to take the PSAT/NMSQT and SAT today in the big and small gyms.

Sophomores and juniors are required to take the College Board’s Practice SAT (PSAT). The test will qualify juniors for the National Merit Scholarship if they receive a 222 index score based on how many English and math questions they answer correctly. The scholarship will allow juniors to win money for college.

Seniors are taking the SAT that is optional for all UCs and most private colleges this year.
