How can a tutor help you master the PSAT?
The PSAT, or Preliminary SAT, doubles as a scholarship qualifying exam -- the National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test, or NMSQT. The test is administered in the fall to students in 10th or 11th grade, allowing them to enter into the National Merit Scholarship Corporation program. Preparation for the exam may allow a student to reap the benefits offered. If your child is taking the PSAT, you may give them the opportunity to put their best foot forward by contacting Varsity Tutors' educational directors to connect with PSAT tutors in Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina.
The PSAT was changed in 2015, breaking into several different types for students of different grade levels. The PSAT/NMSQT is like the old version and is offered to sophomore and junior students. The PSAT 10 is offered to students in 10th grade. It doesn't allow them to enter the scholarship program. The PSAT 8/9 is the latest version; it serves as a baseline to use for student progress in college and career. It is administered in 8th or 9th grade and is less advanced than the other tests.
