New York, NY (September 19, 2017) – For millions of teens, the PSAT/NMSQT® is more than just great practice for the SAT® or ACT® — it’s the first meaningful milestone in the college admissions process. Scoring well on this nearly 3-hour exam can attract notice from colleges and open the door to scholarship opportunities. To help students succeed, for a second consecutive year, Kaplan Test Prep is holding its free, online PSAT Prep Live program, beginning Saturday, September 23. With lessons that cover every section of the exam, Kaplan’s PSAT Prep Live will give the nearly 4 million students who take the PSAT annually access to live interactive instruction online, taught by master teachers who can answer their questions in real time.

“A successful outcome in the college admissions process all starts with a high PSAT score. Doing well on the exam can get students on colleges’ radars for recruitment and scholarship money, and we are excited to once again help students achieve these important goals,” said Lee Weiss, vice president of college admissions programs, Kaplan Test Prep. “With $180 million in National Merit scholarships awarded to top-scoring PSAT takers, we remain committed to helping students achieve their highest possible PSAT scores, which is why we decided to make our best teachers available for free. Our engaging, motivating content delivered live from dynamic, expert teachers will provide students with the opportunity to ask and have their questions answered in real time — within a community of other motivated learners.”  

The eight, one-hour live lessons will begin livestreaming on Saturday, September 23, 4:00-5:00 pm ET and run through Sunday, October 8. The sessions include four lessons dedicated to the Math Test and two lessons each dedicated to the Reading Test and Writing and Language Test.  Among the eight lessons are two Advanced lessons (one Math, one Verbal) geared towards students who are competing for National Merit® scholarships. Each lesson will run live twice, with recordings available for students who were unable to attend or for students needing a refresher.
