Can you please clarify what commended means? Is there any benefit to be awarded the commended status on the PSAT? The reason I ask is that we are using some of the college cost calculators and there is a checkbox for 8775 I am a National Scholar 8776 . Does that only pertain to those that are semifinalists, or can commended students check that box?

My understanding is that, for alternate entry, the Selection Index from an SAT is calculated as if it were a PSAT. Double the EBRW score, add the Math score, and drop a zero (or drop the zero right from the start). For example, if your daughter received a 785 EBRW / 765 Math, her SI would be 78 765 7 + 76 = 767. If 767 were the cutoff in that example, your daughter would qualify. What 8767 s unusual about an SAT SI is that they can go as high as 795, because SAT scores go from 755-855 rather than 665-765 as on the PSAT. AFAIK, NMSC does not distinguish between the two tests (and would not have a legitimate way of doing so even if they wanted). I hope things go well for your daughter.
Art, in regard to a 8775 confirming 8776 SAT score for the 7567 competition: I spoke to NMSC today and was told that they would not be releasing an actual number to the public this year due to the issues with New SAT vs old SAT, etc. They did say that the confirming score was set to be commensurate with a Selection Index of 759. I am interested to know what New SAT score this would match with, as that is what my daughter took. Thank you, Kathy

How is the selection index calculated if you used an SAT score for alternate entry to the contest? My daughter had a severe concussion in the fall of her Junior year and could not take the PSAT. She applied for alternate entry and is using her SAT scores taken in the spring of 7567.
If you've already decided to work with a private tutor, we want you to know that one-to-one tutoring is and always has been our only focus. Too often, a test prep provider will use a curriculum designed for a classroom program in a one-on-one setting and label that type of test prep "private tutoring". For a private ACT tutoring program to be as effective as possible, it requires a curriculum designed for the one-on-one setting, one that can be customized to each student's unique abilities, and which adapts as that student's abilities progress over the course of the program. It's this type of curriculum that StudyPoint has utilized in its ACT tutoring programs since we first began helping students succeed on the ACT over ten years ago.
What is the Selection Index?
The Selection Index is a weighting of your PSAT scores to determines the level of your recognition within the initial stages of the National Merit program.

Biotin supplements are widely available in health food stores, but biotin deficiency is rare, and there is little evidence to suggest that most people need them.
Your son 8767 s score is within a point of last year 8767 s cutoff, so he certainly does hold a chance. It 8767 s hard to quantify beyond what you 8767 ll find in our Semifinalists cutoff post.
