National Merit Commended - when/how are students notified?

hatchettehatchette 16 replies3 threads Junior Member
My daughter is in the Class of 2020. She took the PSAT/NMSQT in October 2018 and scored a Selection Index of 214. I have read that the Commended cutoff is 212, but she has not received any notification either through the school or at home (mail or email). Does anyone know what the process is and timing for Commended notification? Thanks.

    You should check with the high school. If that doesn’t work you can call National Merit directly to inquire. They are very nice and helpful.

    She should have been notified in late September, according to NMSC.

    Hi @hatchette, did your daughter finally receive the letter of commendation? What did you have to do? I just realized now that my son should have gotten one (class of 2020) as he met the minimum Selection Index of 212, but he didn’t get a notification from school or at home. Hope it’s not too late to get one. But bummer that he didn’t get to put that in his college apps. Thanks for your help.
