If ;you are gifted, you can take the ACT or SAT in 7th grade to see if you qualify for the Johns Hopkins Un. or Duke Un. Talent Identification Program.
Otherwise, you can take them in 9th grade or 10th grade if you want to see where you should concentrate your efforts (see if you need to do more recreational reading of novels at bedtime (read yourself to sleep every night) to improve your reading score, seeing as how the math test assumes you have had 2 yrs algebra and 1 of geometry).
National Merit is in 11th grade, you definitely want to take the SAT at least once before you take that PSAT 11th grade National Merit test.
