Taking a Closer Look at Your PSAT/NMSQT Scores
The Benchmark considered "College Ready" is 460 for Reading/Writing. Reaching the Benchmark signifies you are on track to be ready for credit-bearing college courses.
Your score compared to all of the students who took the PSAT Nationally. 31st Percentile means you scored higher than 31% of the students who took the ACT.

Your score from the Reading/Writing Section of the PSAT. Scores range from 160-760 on a 10-point scale.
The Total Score is the sum of the Reading/Writing Score and the Math Score. It ranges from 320 to 1520.
This student's Total Score was higher than 51% of the students who took the PSAT.
Math Score
The only difference between the Reading/Writing Score and the Math Score is the Benchmark is 510

What is the PSAT/NMSQT?
The Acronym Above stands for Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.

The PSAT measures the knowledge and skills that research shows are the most essential for college and career readiness and success.
Scores Continued
Scores represent the student's performance on each test:
Writing and Language
These scores are used to qualify for the National Merit Scholarship. More information on that later.
Scores represent the student's performance across the three tests in the domains of:
Analysis in History/Social Studies*
Analysis in Science**
*Reading Comprehension not your recall of historical facts.
**Ability to read and understand charts, graphs and tables
These Subscores offer feedback of the student's performance in specific skill areas.
What the Subscores Really Mean
Please Note: Big discrepancies in scores are more important than individual scores. For example having a "green" score in Algebra and a "red" score in Advanced Math means you need more practice in Advanced Math.
Your NMSC Index is 2x the sum of your Math, Reading and Writing and Language Scores
Question Number
