By now, you are likely aware of the upcoming changes to both the PSAT and the SAT. If you have a current high school sophomore or younger, they will experience these changes first-hand. Changes to the SAT will reflect as soon as Spring 2016, but the effects of the all-new PSAT will land on desktops as soon as this fall . . . that’s right, Fall of 2015!
Generally speaking, the PSAT is a “mini-version” of the SAT and used for qualification for the national merit scholarship competition. The College Board, who runs the PSAT and SAT has just released a new redesigned practice PSAT with answer sheet explanations! And while there are no samples available from the College Board for the new SAT as of yet, we will be offering ALL NEW, redesigned practice SAT diagnostic tests to Fayette County’s high school sophomores before the end of this school year.
Gearing up for the new PSAT is a great “warm-up” to the SAT, so if your student has not taken the time to review the PSAT practice test, this is a great way to do it. And quite frankly, they should!
