You just received your child’s PSAT score report. This is the perfect time to put it into use to start your child on the path to a top SAT score.
The PSAT score report provides valuable information on how your child can expect to score on the SAT as well as the means to start preparing right now.
First you will want to approximate your child’s expected SAT score:
- Multiply each of the individual Critical Reading, Math and Writing scores by 10 to get estimated individual SAT section scores
- Then add the results for an estimated overall SAT score
So if your daughter got a 60 in Critical Reading, a 52 in Math, and a 65 in Writing on the PSAT, you can expect that she would score approximately 600 in Critical Reading, 520 in Math and 650 in Writing. So she would achieve an overall SAT score somewhere in the neighborhood of 1770 if she took the SAT without any further preparation.
Please be aware that the PSAT and SAT are very similar but that there are significant differences, so this is only an approximation but it is a good way to get an idea of what your child would probably score if she took the test today.
In my next post I will show you how to start using this information to get your child the SAT score she needs to get into her top colleges.Amy Martin Rodriguez, PhD Academic coach and Owner Click here to contact me with questions…
