2017 PSAT Scores

Students received paper copies of their PSAT Score Reports & Test Booklets today ... so what's next?

(1) Visit studentscores.collegeboard.org to create a College Board account and get your full PSAT/NMSQT score report. Please note the location of the access code on the front cover of the score reports. Students must use their unique access code to get their full score reports online.

(2) Create a Khan Academy account at satpractice.org and link it to your College Board account to get free personalized practice for the SAT.

(3) Start planning for college and career using tools like Big Future and Roadtrip Nation®, available via your online PSAT report.

(4) Register for the SAT in March, May or June. Spring of junior year is the perfect time to take the SAT for the first time -- students can take advantage of their PSAT/NMSQT experience, and they will have time to practice, increase their skills, and test again if they want to improve their scores.
