If you have students that are current sophomores or younger, you have probably heard something about the new SAT that will be put in place in Spring 2016. I will be talking a bit about that in a later posting but for now I want to talk about the new PSAT which will be given this fall.
In general terms, the PSAT is meant to be a shorter version of the SAT. It is used for qualification for the national merit scholarship competition. The College Board, who runs the SAT and PSAT, has just released the practice PSAT for the new test.
If your student wants to review the new PSAT, and they should, this is the best way to do so. The new practice PSAT can also give a feel for what the new SAT will be like starting next year which is another reason to review this new PSAT.
