What do PSAT Scores Mean?


 

What do PSAT Scores Mean?

When your child takes the PSAT in October, you will get the results in December. If you just received your PSAT scores, you may want to know what those scores really mean. You can get more information here: College Board® Score Report

For more information, these reports will help.

When your child takes the PSAT next year, be sure to register your child as a homeschool student. When you do, the scores will come to you as quickly as they come to a school - which means you get the results a couple of weeks sooner. If you register your child as a student as the school where they take the test, then you will get the test results at the same time as other parents at the school.

I signed up my son to take the PSAT/ NMSQT at our local high school. They only wrote his name on a sheet of paper. Will he fill out more info on the day of the test? How will they know who to give the scores to?

Dear Krissy,
You will give more info on the day of the test. In her article Two Weeks to the PSAT Lee says, "When the student fills out the personal information on their answer sheet, they enter their state's homeschool code instead of a school code. You can find the homeschool code for every test, including the PSAT, in this blog post: Homeschool State Codes)"

  • Homeschool College with CLEP This Summer

I wanted to do it in the summer so that we could include passing scores in my sons' college applications. Since their senior year would be in community college, I wanted to know which courses they would pass by examination so they wouldn't
