Coming Soon: PSAT Scores! Now what?

College Board releases PSAT scores on December 10th in New York! 

While you’re waiting for your scores, make valuable use of your time and try a practice ACT, if you haven’t already done so. Your high school Guidance Office will have free booklets with an actual ACT exam. Make sure you strictly time yourself and answer every question. There is no penalty for wrong answers so guess before time runs out! You can also find online options to try a free, abbreviated ACT to get a predictive score.

Once you have PSAT and practice ACT scores, you have data to make an informed choice about which test may be better for you. Remember – ALL colleges accept scores from both SAT and ACT. By preparing for just one test, you will save time and money! Not sure which test is the one for you? College Board (SAT) and ACT collaborated on Concordance Tables with equivalent scores. If your scores are similar, then go with the test you felt most comfortable with. Check out Test Preps’ ACT vs. SAT chart to also help you with your decision.

Didn’t do as well as you hoped on the PSAT? Rest assured that the PSAT scores are never released to colleges. It is strictly practice and you should use score report details to see what you are doing well and what you need to work on. Remember, this is a process and the PSAT is just the first step.
