PSAT Scores Release December 10, 2018

A Message From: Middleborough High School Guidance Department

 

Dear Parent/Guardian:

The Guidance Counselors at Middleborough High School are pleased to announce that on Tuesday, December 11th, students in grades 10 and 11 will be able to access their PSAT scores on the College Board website.  All students in grades 10 and 11 were administered the PSAT free of charge in school on October 10th.  The PSAT provides an opportunity for students to take a practice SAT, a requirement for admission to most 4-year colleges and universities. The results of the PSAT do not count against your child in terms of the college admissions process.  However, by taking this exam, students improve their chances for success when they take the SAT as part of the college admissions process in the spring of their junior year.  The results of the PSAT are personalized and contain information on your student’s areas of strength in addition to the types of skills that he/she will need to improve upon.  Additionally, all 11th grade students are eligible for the NMSQT (National Merit Scholarship) if their score is in the top percentage of test-takers in the nation. 

 

All students who took the PSAT on October 10th will receive an email from the College board on Tuesday, December 11th with instructions on creating a College Board account, going to their online score report, and using their access code to view their scores.  It is important to note that most 11th graders have already created a College Board account after taking the PSAT in October of grade 10.  Students who have created an account in the past should not create a second account.  To obtain a forgotten password, please click on “Forgot Password” and follow instructions.  Once logged in to College Board, follow the set of instructions in the email to retrieve scores.  To understand and interpret scores, please watch the College Board video “Understanding Your PSAT/NMSQT Score Report”.  For any questions about accessing and understanding scores, please contact your student’s guidance counselor.

 

A benefit of taking the PSAT is getting individualized information on each student’s strengths and areas to improve upon.  The College Board has partnered with Khan Academy to offer all students a personalized SAT Prep Program that is FREE of charge.  Students can link their College Board account to Khan Academy by following the directions on the College Board website.

By taking this free SAT Prep course on Khan Academy, students have the potential to significantly increase their SAT scores on future tests.  We encourage all students to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity.  If you or your student has any questions, please contact the Guidance Counselor for assistance.

 

Sincerely,

Amy Beirne, Ash Baron, Stephen Goldman
