“If you’re preparing to take the PSAT, it’s important you understand everything there is to know about PSAT scoring.”
Many times when students sit down to take their PSAT they are at a loss as to what to do. One reason, the PSAT is scored different than your average test. While the system is similar to the SAT the over all schools vary slightly. Once you complete the PSAT you will have three raw scores. One in math, one in reading, and the final one in writing and language. However, because the formula for each PSAT is scored differently, it is hard to make a completely accurate prediction.
- Like the SAT, your total PSAT score is a combination of your Evidence-Based Reading and Writing (EBRW) and Math scores. (The EBRW score comprises the Reading.
- The final score you’ll receive on the PSAT is a National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) Selection Index score.
- If you want to try to qualify as a Semifinalist for the National Merit Scholarship Program, you can use the Selection Index score cutoffs to set a PSAT goal score.
