Don’t be afraid to guess on the PSAT. The penalty for guessing (deleting a ¼ of a point for each wrong answer) has been eliminated. The SAT has taken a leaf out of the ACT book, which has been testing students for years without a penalty for guessing.
Scores Ranges Differ
The PSAT 8/9 has scores from 120-720. The PSAT/NMSQT test scores are 160-760. The SAT has 200-800 scores.
Make sure your testing schedule in GuidedPath has the PSAT listed. Select the green “Add a Test Not Found in the Table” button and find PSAT. Check with your counselor for registration and test dates. Watch a video on how to add a test within GuidedPath.
