Practice for the PSAT

The first PSAT is on 14 October so this is a great time to start practising.

The PSAT has the same structure as the new SAT, just without some of the hardest questions (or the optional essay). Not only is it great practice for the SAT, but your PSAT results can also help you earn national recognition and scholarships.
