College Application Day

Seniors – Mark your calendars because JL Mann’s Virtual College Application Day is coming up soon! It will be on Tuesday, October 6th. You will be virtually meeting with college admissions representatives during your Econ/Govt CP & Honors classes (including virtual sections). They will be available to answer your questions about college applications and the admissions process. They’re looking forward to “meeting” you and helping you!

If you do not have an Econ/Govt CP or Honors class, please see your school counselor, as you will be allowed to attend during the 5th or 6th period Google Meet times, and s/he will be able to share that access with you.

PSAT Test Administrations

This information pertains only to those sophomores and juniors who registered to take the PSAT/NMSQT on October 14, 2020 during the district-wide PSAT registration window.  The district-wide PSAT registration window was from August 31 – September 9, 2020. Registration is now closed, and we are unable to take any additional registrations for the PSAT.

Last Friday, GCS decided to split the upcoming administration of the PSAT on October 14, 2020 into two administrations. Blue and Green students as well as virtual students who would be in that grouping if in-person will participate in the first administration of the PSAT on October 14, 2020. Red and purple students as well as virtual students who would be in that grouping if in-person will participate in the second administration of the PSAT on October 29, 2020. Students testing with accommodations will test October 14-15. All participants (in-person and virtual) will test onsite with the paper format. If a student does not test on his or her scheduled test day, there is no makeup administration opportunity. Students may not change their scheduled test day as the appropriate amount of test materials has been ordered for each test administration and it is past the College Board deadline to change our orders.

Participating students have received an email at their school email address with test day details, some of which are included below, from Mr. Buzzell.

Please be aware that due to COVID-19 restrictions, students must bring their own #2 pencils (3-4 of them with good erasers) and their own acceptable calculator. The school will not be able to provide students with a pencil or a calculator.

Students must review College Board’s calculator policy at https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/psat-nmsqt-psat-10/taking-the-tests/test-day-checklist/approved-calculators

Preadministration and administration of the PSAT will be on the same day.

Test Schedule (Standard Time – 3 hours 25 minutes – Does not include time for proctor reading instructions before the test begins and before each section) :

Preadministration (30 - 40 minutes)

Reading (60 minutes)

5 minute break

Writing & Language (35 minutes)

Math - No Calculator (25 minutes)

Students will eat lunch after testing is complete in their testing room per the College Board. We estimate that most students will finish around 1:00.

Students are highly encouraged to bring snacks and a water for consumption only during the two scheduled breaks. Students must place their snacks and water bottles on the floor beside their desks before testing begins and keep them there until the two scheduled breaks.
