What is the PSAT?

PSAT is a Standardized test that can be taken by high schoolers – especially sophomores and juniors. PSAT is an acronym for Preliminary Scholastic Assessment Test i.e. the Pre SAT. While the SAT score is crucial towards a student’s admission to a US college, none of the PSAT scores are considered for college admission.

If you are in the eighth or ninth grade, the PSAT 8/9 is for you. Good news is that the PSAT8/9 is now gone digital! If you’re a sophomore, we’ll prep you for PSAT 10. As a junior, you’ll be eligible for the PSAT/NMSQT that is held in October every year.

The PSATs assess students on the following skills and knowledge

  1. Evidence-Based Reading and Writing
    • Reading Test
    • Writing and Language Test
  2. Math

Why is the PSAT important?

Are you one of those who are not sure if PSAT scores matter? Well, they do matter and here is how they do…

  1. The PSAT is precedence to the SAT. The PSAT is considered as a forebear to the  It gives students a feel of the super important SAT. The PSAT allows you get the much required practice and strategy planning for the SAT before you finally take the SAT. The PSAT and SAT have similar formats, in terms of sections, question types and time structure. Your PSAT score is an indicator of your readiness for SAT, hence eventually an indicator for college readiness.
  1. Not only that, the PSAT/NMSQTis a National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. National Merit Holders are not considered during the college admission process but may earn a few bonus points during the admission process. Some PSAT high scorers can get monetary scholarships from select colleges. Only U.S. citizens are considered for the scholarship.
  1. A student could be invited to apply for one of the college scholarships by saying “yes” to Student Search Service on her PSAT 10 answer sheet.

Is the PSAT like the SAT?

Very much! The only difference is the number of questions, their difficulty level and the score range. The SAT and the PSATs measure the same skills and knowledge with grade appropriate questions.

Like the SAT, there is no penalty for incorrect answers on the PSAT.
