The PSAT measures critical thinking skills that are important for success in college, including critical reading, math problem-solving and writing skills. The most common reasons for taking the PSAT are:

· to receive feedback on your strengths and weaknesses on skills necessary for college study. You can then focus your preparation on those areas that could most benefit from additional study or practice.

· to see how your performance on an admissions test might compare with that of others applying to college.

· to enter the competition for scholarships from the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (grade 11).

· to help prepare for the SAT. You can become familiar with the kinds of questions and exact directions you will see on the SAT.

· to receive information from colleges when you check “yes” to Student Search Service.
