PSAT Results – Understanding Your PSAT Score Report

If your child took the PSAT in mid-October, he or she should receive the results from the exam in early to mid December,though 2015 results are not available until January 2016. Once you’ve received your child’s PSAT results, it may still be difficult to understand how he or she performed in relation to other students who took the exam, and what your child’s scores mean for his or her future performance on standardized tests like the SAT.   Because there are several different components to a standard PSAT score report, each of which provides different information regarding your child’s performance and standings, his or her score report may seem somewhat confusing at first glance.

This PDF will take you through your child’s PSAT score report and help you better understand how to interpret his or her PSAT results.
