When interpreting PSAT scores, sophomores should focus more on percentiles than scaled (20-80) scores. In other words, if you are happy with your percentile rankings, keep up the good work. On the other hand, if you are not happy with your percentile rankings, you should begin preparing for the SAT now.
In the days to come, I will post some thoughts on how to begin preparing. (Don’t worry, there’s nothing to stress out about. There are, however, some simple things you can start doing now to make the SAT seem easier when you take it junior year.)
