PSAT Advice Available
to the College Board, high school students who will take the Preliminary
National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) this fall
will be the first to receive detailed, personalized feedback on
how to improve their skills through the recently introduced Score
Report Plus. The College Board sponsors the 130-minute PSAT/NMSQT
test that will be given on October 16 and 20 of this year.
The advice will come from educators and will reflect the students’
performance on each of the three parts of the test. The report
will focus on up to three skills that need improvement on each
of the test’s three parts. A student might be directed to “practice
summarizing main ideas when you read” or “practice solving math
problems that involve basic probability, basic counting and finding
the average.” The Report will also include feedback on each test
question, projected SAT scores and how to prepare for an intended
major and career. #
