Students will use the Bluebook app, which will be used for the digital PSAT.

Warriors have been taking the PSATs for many years. The PSAT provides information to predict how well a student will do on the SAT. Although the PSAT has always been on paper, this year for the first-time students will be using their computers instead. According to Prep Scholar, there are five major changes being made. The PSAT will now permanently be taken on a digital device, the digital PSAT will be shorter, sections will now be called modules, new content will be used to test the same skills, and PSAT scoring is different. With these new changes, there comes a lot of different opinions. Samantha Uplinger says, “I like that it’s online, and I kind of like that it’s shorter, but that also gives us less room for error. If we get a question wrong, there will be more points taken off if there are less questions.” Some Warriors are voicing other concerns with the new PSAT changes. “If it was on paper, we wouldn’t have to worry about the electronics not working and kids won’t get headaches from staring at a screen for hours,”, said Rebecca Bench. Whether students are happy with this change or not, the new PSAT changes are final, and scores will be coming out in a few weeks.
