How to convert PSAT Raw Score to a scaled score

Dear All,

I guess there may be some other people having asked similar questions before. I have tried googling the internet and this site. But I cannot find the answer. I am sorry if I missed the answers in previous threads.

Here is my question:

PSAT Critical Reading contains Section 1 (24 questions) and Section 3 (48 questions). Therefore, the highest raw score one can get is 72. However, according to "2012 PSAT/NMSQT Score Conversion Tables" at College Board site, the highest raw score is only 48, which seems to me it's only for Section 3 (http://professionals.collegeboard.com/profdownload/understanding-psat-nmsqt-scores.pdf, page 4).


How to convert the raw scores in section 1 to a scaled score then?

Thank you, in advance, for your help.
