Help students discover their path to college with the PSAT/NMSQT & PSAT 8/9. Your child(ren) will take the PSAT/NMSQT® and PSAT™ 8/9 on October 10th, Wednesday.
The PSAT 8/9 is the first step in the journey to college and parents may have many questions about how they can use it to get their child started. And students and parents may not be aware of all the great tools the PSAT/NMSQT offers to help them move even further down the path. For example, in a recent study, students who practiced for 6-8 hours with Official SAT Practice on Khan Academy® saw a score increase of 90 points from the PSAT/NMSQT to the SAT. In order to make these conversations easy, there are handouts, email templates, a PowerPoint presentation, and more available. Thank you for helping your child(ren) make the most of their testing experience.
