New York, NY (December 9, 2019) — For high school sophomores, December is more than just thinking about their much deserved days off from school and holiday gift buying and receiving. It also includes getting back their PSAT scores and understanding what’s ahead in the college admissions process. To help students and their families understand what their scores mean and how these can potentially help future college applicants secure merit-based financial aid, Kaplan Test Prep has created a PSAT online hub that will answer some of the most frequently asked questions, including:
- What’s a good PSAT score?
- What does your PSAT score mean for the SAT or ACT?
- How do I study for the SAT and ACT?
- How do I become a National Merit Scholarship finalist?
The launch of the PSAT hub coincides with when test takers will receive their scores from the October exam. According to the test maker, students will be informed about their results December 9-11, depending on their region of the country.
“The PSAT is the starting line of the college admissions process and scholarship money,” said Sam Pritchard, director of college prep programs, Kaplan Test Prep. “With tens of millions of dollars in National Merit scholarships awarded to top-scoring students, it’s to students’ and parents’ competitive advantage to be educated about all issues related to it. We’re excited to make these resources available, which will enable students and their families to be better informed about what’s at stake.”
For parents and students who have questions about understanding their PSAT scores and next steps, Kaplan is offering free consultations with SAT experts. To book an appointment, visit https://kaplan-psat-scores.youcanbook.me/
