How can a tutor help you master the PSAT?
The academic world is much more competitive than it was even a decade ago. Students in their freshman and sophomore years are starting to feel the pressure to excel and to perform well on a variety of standardized tests. Teachers and testing professionals recognize this, and for some sophomores, and most juniors in high school, the preliminary SAT or PSAT, is an introduction to the SAT and ACT exams that they may later take if they want to go to college.
The PSAT is also considered a prequalification exam for a highly prestigious scholarship program, the National Merit Scholarship. Some call the PSAT the "National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test" or NMSQT. Connecting with an expert PSAT tutor in Boulder, CO, may help you to make the most of your study time. Varsity Tutors' skilled educational directors are happy to help you connect with an experienced PSAT tutor to improve your odds of being highly successful come test time.
There are three different versions of this exam, including the PSAT/NMSQT, which is usually taken by students in their junior year of high school; the PSAT 10, which is designed for sophomores and may not be used to qualify for the National Merit Scholarship; and the PSAT 8/9, which is meant to be a measurement tool to gauge a student's progress entering high school. In the PSAT/NMSQT, there are two new components: evidence-based reading and writing and math. You'll have 2 hours and 45 minutes to complete the PSAT. Personalized PSAT instruction in Boulder may allow you to develop a rapport with your tutor to facilitate the learning process.
