(JENKS) - Students at Jenks High School will have to retake their PSAT tests because their completed tests were quarantined at a post office during the national anthrax scare.

The Preliminary Scholastic Assessment Test is the practice test for the SAT test, but it also determines which students are named National Merit semifinalists or finalists _ honors that draw scholarship offers from most colleges.

The College Board promised schools in Jenks' situation that their students would not be prevented from achieving National Merit status.

Jenks students will retake the test on Feb. 26.
