How can a tutor help you master the PSAT?
Younger high school students are aware the Scholastic Aptitude Test, or SAT, is approaching fast. Your child may, however, be surprised to learn the Preliminary SAT, or PSAT, is taken much sooner. Scoring well may not only help your student get ready for the SAT, to exhibit their proficiency in math and English, but it may qualify them for National Merit Scholarships. Varsity Tutors can match your student with a PSAT tutor in Bowmansville, New York, that is passionate about the subject, and can work to instill that passion in your son or daughter to produce a truly enjoyable learning experience.
The PSAT, also known as the National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (NMSQT), is taken by 10th or 11th graders, with scoring up to 1520. The PSAT 10, drawn in 10th grade, is not employed for scholarship purposes, and the PSAT 8/ 9 serves as set up a baseline for the progress your student is making. Your child can score as high as 1440 with this version. Each test is 2 hours, 45 minutes, further presenting a challenge. Your youngster must not only know the material, but be prepared for the format and length. There's a lot to cover to be ready for the PSAT, so it's important to get started ahead of time.
