Scores

The PSAT/NMSQT promotes college readiness by providing students, parents, and educators with detailed feedback on students’ skills as well as tools for improvement and college planning.

Getting Scores

Score reports for students and data for educators are available in December. Paper score reports are sent to schools, which distribute them to students.

Students Get Scores at School

In addition to the paper score report — Score Report Plus — students receive access to online scores and tools through My College QuickStartTM and MyRoadTM.
