When you think about the PSAT, you probably think of it as a pre-SAT. While the PSAT is a great primer for the SAT (and even the ACT), it's way more than just a rehearsal for the real thing. High school students take this nationwide multiple-choice test every year.
The score of PSAT won't count towards your college admissions applications, but it is definitely the qualifying test for the National Merit Scholarship. This implies that some of the highest scoring students may win scholarship money, so while you shouldn't stress out about the PSAT, you certainly shouldn't ignore it either. Instead, use the PSAT as both practice for the SAT and ACT and one of the initiators on your college admissions journey.
How do I register?
Unlike the SAT, PSAT registration is not facilitated by the College Board. Instead, students register for the PSAT through their high schools. Your child's high school guidance or college counseling office will give you the information about how and when to sign up for the PSAT.
