Private PSAT Prep in CT
The Importance of the PSAT/NMSQT
As the name implies, the PSAT/NMSQT (Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test) is meant to both give your child his/her first taste of the SAT and determine if your child will be considered for the prestigious National Merit Scholarship. The new PSAT 10 closely matches the new SAT while the traditional PSAT matches the SAT that will be administered until January of 2016. If your child plans to take the SAT after the January 2016 test date, we recommend taking the PSAT 10 to make the most of this practice test. The PSAT presents a unique chance for your child to experience taking a scholastic aptitude test in a testing environment, under time pressures exactly as it will be on the day of the Big Test.
Additionally, the National Merit Scholarship is more than a $2,500 scholarship, simply qualifying for the award is an accomplishment that your child can include on the ‘Awards’ section of his/her Common Application to colleges.
