How can a tutor help you master the PSAT?
The Preliminary SAT (PSAT) is a standardized test that helps students prepare for the SAT. There are three versions of the test, including the PSAT 8/9, PSAT 10, and the PSAT/NMSQT. The PSAT 8/9 is offered to students in grades eight and nine. The PSAT 10 is given by students in grade ten Finally, the PSAT/NMSQT is available to students in either grades ten and eleven.
The PSAT consists of three sections and takes approximately three hours to complete. The two sections include evidence based reading and writing and math. The evidence based reading and writing section focuses on text complexity, informational graphics, command of evidence, and words in context. The math section involves advanced math, data analysis, problem solving, and algebra.
Many students do not prepare as much as they should for the PSAT because they view it as just a practice test for the SAT. While it is a practice test, it is still a good idea for your child to prepare for it. The PSAT provides insight into the type of material that is likely to be on the SAT. It also helps your child get acquainted with the format of the test. The PSAT/NMSQT is the National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test, which means that if your child performs well on this version of the exam that they may be eligible to potentially earn a college scholarship. If you want to try to make sure that your child is prepared for their PSAT, you should connect them with a private tutor.
