When you go about preparing for the National Merit/PSAT exam, prepare for it as if it were the real SAT! I cannot stress enough how often students make the mistake of blowing off this test just because it’s the “pre-SAT.” The test is usually administered in mid-October, so there’s still time to prepare folks! (I’ll follow up in the next few blog posts with more about what/how you should prepare.)

It is indeed a great honor to be a National Merit finalist; only 15,000 students out of the over 1.4 million nationwide who took the test will become finalists.

Also, remember that this is a relatively lengthy process. You take the test your junior year usually, but you don’t find out about becoming a semi-finalist until fall of senior year (at least that’s how it was at my school), and then finalist standing is awarded mid-senior year.
