    The Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test is a great tool for students considering college. The PSAT/NMSQT measures critical reading skills, math problem-solving skills and writing skills. Mountain Ridge High School recommends that students take the PSAT/NMSQT in order to receive feedback about strengths and weaknesses, to enter the competition for National Merit Scholar scholarships (11th graders), and to help prepare for the SAT.
