National Merit Semifinalist SAT Confirmation

A theoretical question this time...

On my October PSAT, I scored a 1460 (730E/730M, NMSC 219). Obviously, in years past this wouldn't make the cut for National Merit in the most competitive states (incl. VA, where I live), but at least one source shows that because this year's test was tougher, I might be close, very close: https://prepexpert.com/national-merit-psat-cutoff-scores-class-2018/ (VA estimated cutoff: 1460/220)
I took the SAT once in March, and got a 1490 (720E/770M); if I get NMS (which is very unlikely), would that score qualify for Finalist eligibility? Thanks! (I just want to know if I need to worry about prepping to retake the SAT over the summer.)
