What is the PSAT 10?

The PSAT 10 is a practice SAT exam that debuted in the 2015-16 school year. It is aligned to the new SAT which meaning it has new SAT question types including evidence support questions on the reading. The scores will be on the same scale as the new SAT.

The PSAT 10 does not qualify students for the National Merit competition, even if you get a really high score. It's just a practice test.

And one of the best ways to practice for the PSAT is to take the PSAT 10 in a live real setting. Then when you receive your score sheet, determine what areas need improvement then study those sections.
