You’ve probably heard that the SAT® is going digital next spring. But did you know the PSAT® is also changing? Here’s everything you need to know about the digital PSAT.

Digital PSAT Timeline

The Class of 2025 will be the first group of students to take the digital PSAT in fall of 2023. This will be the National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test®(NMSQT®) for the Class of 2025. Despite this, we recommend that these students finalize their SAT scores with the current paper-and-pencil test for several reasons. All students younger than this will take the digital PSAT/NMSQT and should prepare to take the digital version of the SAT.

What’s Changing?

Like the new SAT®, the main changes to the new PSAT is that it will be fully digital and it will be adaptive. Learn more about this and other content changes here.
