Five Effective Ways to Leverage your PSAT Scores

Last Updated: Dec 15, 2014 11:30:00 AM

It’s December – the time when every student across the U.S. who took the PSAT/NMSQT gets back a copy of the PSAT itself, and, most importantly, a score report that breaks down the results on all three test sections: writing, reading, and math, including the student’s responses and the correct responses to every question.

So what’s a motivated student to do with all that feedback? Here are our five suggestions...

  1. Read your report carefully. Note the predictive analysis for future SAT scores.
  2. Pay careful attention to the kinds of questions you missed or omitted altogether. These form your “marching orders” – areas for special emphasis as you prepare for the SAT (and even the ACT!).
  3. Select immediately the SAT test dates (and ACT test dates) on which you are going to take your next test(s). The SAT will be given four more times this academic year, and the ACT, three.
  4. Review your PSAT results with your current test-prep provider to get expert analysis of your testing strengths and weaknesses so you can better prepare for upcoming exams.
  5. Set your goals for future testing! If you don’t know them already, find out now the score ranges of students accepted to the colleges on your college list.

Call us for expert help to prepare for the SAT and ACT ― and to help you craft a well-balanced college list.
