PSAT is a test that helps students in many ways. Students take the PSAT test once a year at a high school in the United States. If students are doing well in PSAT in their 11th grade, they can attend the National Merit Scholarship Competition. It is best to have a scholarship at the competition, but the titles of the semifinals and finalists in the competition are very helpful for college admissions applications.
PSAT / NMSQT is part of the College Board and National Merit Scholarship Program. PSAT is an entrance exam similar to SAT I. This exam also gives you the opportunity to participate in the National Merit Scholarships competition.
