PSAT (The Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test)
Three types of PSAT are offered: PSAT 8/9, PSAT/NMSQT and PSAT 10. These are often used for SAT test prep due to the identical format of questions and are taken by many students seeking scholarships.
Each year, approximately 2 million students take the PSAT/NMSQT or PSAT 10, with 7,500 receiving a corporate- or college-sponsored merit scholarship in addition to a national merit scholarship.
The PSAT is not included in admissions criteria for high schools or universities. Nevertheless, the fact that its questions are in the same formats as on the SAT makes studying for the PSAT an effective way to prepare for the SAT.
The digital SAT and digital PSAT 8/9 and PSAT/NMSQT can be taken beginning in fall 2023 (the digital PSAT 10 will be offered from spring 2024).

TOEFL, the most recognized exam of English language proficiency for non-native English speakers, is offered as a 1:1 Class for students by grade, level of English proficiency, and exam-taking purpose.
1:1 classes are offered in the following categories: basic, intermediate, advanced, and 110 (test question-centered class). Goal scores are established for each student based on the scores obtained in each subject (Reading, Listening, Writing, Speaking) in ETS’ mock TOEFL exam.
The TOEFL exam can be taken at a designated test center or via Test at Home.
The SSAT, an admission test for private schools, and ISEE, an independent school entrance exam, are relevant not only to those seeking admission to boarding/private schools in the US but also students overseas who wish to apply to a foreign school in Korea.
Students in Korea who are applying to a private school in the US must submit TOEFL, SSAT or ISEE scores with their transcript. Students in the US who are applying to a foreign school in Korea may be exempted from the admission exam if they have a high SSAT or ISEE score. There are also many schools that select students based on MAP scores.
The SSAT, ISEE and MAP are similar in nature but vary slightly in format. Students are encouraged to prepare for the desired tests at Herald Campus to achieve the highest possible outcomes.
