If you have a high school student, chances are you have heard of the PSAT and National Merit Scholarships. While many people, understandably, believe that the PSAT is simply a practice run for the SAT, it actually serves another equally important purpose.
The PSAT or Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test is the qualifying test for the National Merit Scholarship. That is why the test is also known as the National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test or NMSQT.
Between three and four million high school students will take the PSAT every year. While scoring well on the PSAT may not help your child get into the college of his or her dreams, it might just help pay for some of it.
Here’s how it works. After taking the PSAT in October, about 50,000 students will be recognized for their high score on the exam. Of the students recognized, about 34,000 will receive a Letter of Commendation from the National Merit Scholarships Corporation. These students don’t receive a National Merit Scholarship but having a Letter of Commendation is a feather in their cap. It also looks good on a college application.
Approximately 16,000 students will score in the top 99 percent of their state to become National Merit Semifinalists. About half of those semifinalists will win a National Merit Scholarship based on their PSAT score, recommendations from their teachers and a personal essay. These students may also receive awards from colleges who recruit them.
"Many students don’t prep for the PSAT but those who do have a significant advantage."
