So hears the deal. I really want to become a National Merit Scholar this year. I lnow my PSAT score will need to be over 200. I'm about to begin my junior year. When I took the PSAT sophomore year I was kind of lazy and didn't take it seriously and I didn't do any test prep or anything. I score a 171. My question is, if I take it seriously this year and do the test prep and review my old test do you think I'll likely be able to improve my score about 50 points and become a national merit scholar?
How much did your psat score improve from sophomore year to junior year and what did you do to improve it?
