The PSAT is wonderful practice for the SAT, and juniors who take the test may qualify to enter National Merit Scholarship Corporation Programs. Most importantly, the PSAT is a comprehensive tool that gives valuable feedback to the student and to the school. Students will receive scores in critical reading, math reasoning, and writing and will see how their scores compare to those of other sophomores or juniors across the country. Through a question by question review of answers, students will be able to see which answers they got right or wrong and will be able to refer to the original test booklet for additional practice. The Score Report will give students a personalized statement of specific academic skills that need attention, along with suggested steps to improve those skills.
Please note that the PSAT is NOT used for college admission.
