WHAT IS THE PSAT?
The PSAT is designed to be a predictor of how we can expect a student to perform on the SAT exam. Students receive not only their scores from the PSATs but also an information sheet that identifies the specific questions answered correctly or incorrectly and their original test booklet. This allows the student an opportunity to work at strengthening their skills prior to the time the SAT is first taken (usually in May or June of their junior year).
The PSAT scores are NOT used for college admissions!
Part of the PSAT information requested on the day of the exam identifies potential collegiate and professional interests. This information allows colleges and universities with programs relevant to those interests to provide information to students so be prepared for an onslaught of college information to arrive at your home!
PSAT scores can qualify students for the National Merit Scholarship Program. If your student’s score qualifies them for this competition, notification will occur at the high school. Students can expect to receive PSAT scores (sent to the high school and given to the student) eight to ten weeks after the test.
If you have any questions about the PSAT, please contact Matt Comeau at email@example.com or at 585-242-5000, ext. 4501. Thank you in advance.
