Really possible to improve PSAT score by 37?
My d got a 176 on the PSAT when she took it for practice as a sophomore. Cutoff in our state was 213. Work on her current classes, theatre participation, leadership activities and community service give her about 3 hours/week to have fun with her firends.
I was thinking about encouraging her to find some time to study but I really wonder if it is worth it. Isn't PSAT only used for National Merit?
If so, even if she finds 20 hours to study and practice for it, do you think she can get the 37 or more points for the cutoff?
