Being a "National Merit Scholar" or even commended by this organization is very prestigious and will help students stand out when they apply to college.

With the help of Kaplan we plan to provide a free mock PSAT test which will simulate actual test conditions. We will use the same script as the official PSAT proctors and the same test materials. The only difference is that schools will never see these scores.
What will be on the test: The test has 5 sections and covers critical reading, math, and writing skills.
There are 2 sections on critical reading; 2 sections on math; and 1 section on writing skills. The score from the PSAT an be used to make a general prediction on how a student will perform on the SAT, which is required for college admissions.
Results will be provided on June 1st, 2012 at 7pm (please see below).
