The PSAT is a two-hour exam given once a year in October. Many students take the PSAT at school, not only in preparation for the SAT, but also to qualify for the National Merit Scholarship Competition. 

The PSAT has a separate math and verbal sections and a third section testing English grammar. Each section is scored on a scale of 20 to 80. The total score of the exam is a combination of each section.

It is a great idea to take this exam because students can receive feedback on their strengths and weaknesses on skills necessary for college. This exam is also indicative of how will your student will perform on an actual college entrance exam (the ACT or SAT).
