PSAT Saturday and Wednesday

Are the saturday and wednesday tests related in any way. Like they might have the same questions but in different orders. Is there any chance that one might get the same form on saturday as a wednesday test taker might get?

    No. The tests will be entirely different forms, totally different questions. I wouldn't be surprised if CB specifically avoids for example questions on cylinders, arithmetic mean, passages similar to Wed., and gives a bunch of hard vocab instead of easy vocab. CB isn't stupid, if they did it your way they would have people come in on Wednesday with the express intent of memorizing the entire test to help their buddies on Saturday.

    Isn't that of unfair to saturday takers or wednesday even? Because you can't tell difficulty with two completely different tests.

    They each have their own curve. then the NMSF score is done based on both scores and each state. It ends up being completely fair.
