    The PSAT is not the same as taking the SAT earlier than normal. Yes, your score will count. Most colleges, however, superscore (take the highest section from any sitting from each section).

    yes, it's going to be looked at. most people do better on the SAT, though-most don't take the PSAT seriously and don't study.

    if you get a high enough score, you can get scholarships, etc.

    go to the National Merit webpage.

    No, because there is SAT1
    Yes, if you're a national merit finalist
