To make high school just a tad bit more fun, there's an important standardized exam coming up tomorrow: The PSAT-NMSQT. So what is it?
The PSAT portion of the test stands for the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test. Basically, it's a precursor for the SAT Reasoning Test, which is a college entrance exam. The PSAT can give high school students an idea of how they'll perform on the real SAT.
The NMSQT portion of the test name refers to the National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. Basically, when you take the PSAT tomorrow, you're also competing for a chance to win the National Merit Scholarship. Translation: CASHIOLA.
Yes, the stakes are high, but if you haven't prepared before now, there are still a couple tips you can read right now that will help you score higher like using a process of elimination to answer and using the test booklet as your answer sheet and transferring over in segments of ten instead of going back and forth between the answer booklet and the scantron.
