Hi everyone! I’m from Florida and I got a 200 selection index on my PSAT, which is 97th percentile. I know that the top 50,000 test takers are national merit commended scholars, so does that mean I have a good chance of being one? Thanks!
The 97th percentile is probably the National percentile, I believe that is guestimate of all Juniors whether they take exam or not. If you go on cb website, the is a little question mark by the percentage, if you toggle on it, it will also show user percentage, that will probably be 92-93 % that will be closer to final percentages. 209 is closer to what we will probably need for commended. But that is a great score, congrats
im a commended scholar from 2020 and I got 207 which was the cutoff I believe. great job though!
In recent years the cutoff has been between 207 and 212.
Sorry. Lowest it has been I think is 207. Your score will likely put you in the ~90K range. Nothing to scoff at. Do you qualify for the national recognition programs?
Program for minorities, rural schools and others.
I don’t think so because I’m asian and I don’t think where I live is considered rural.
“Compass has learned that this year’s National Merit Commended cutoff will remain at 207, the historical low set by the class of 2022.”
