My son's high school offers and encourages students to take the PSAT in tenth grade as practice. Since the real test is Junior Year in terms of the National Merit Scholarship, other than the practice of sitting in the gym taking this test a full year out, we are considering that it would be better for him to continue to do practice tests throughout the year at home (he started last summer with these) and take the test only as a junior. Any thoughts? My daughter was pretty burned out by the end of Junior year with psat, sat , subject tests etc and I see some benefit in being more selective with these tests.
