At this point, junior year is in full swing, and you now understand what all your upperclassmen friends have been warning you about. You’ve likely got a test or paper under your belt in each of your classes and are in the process of finding the balance of managing a heavier workload and more responsibility in your extracurriculars. And now you realize that the PSAT is next week. Oh, great. Here comes the College Board to put its big, fat, number two pencil-stained thumb on the scale and throw everything out of whack again. Well, it doesn’t have to be that way if you keep the PSAT in perspective. Here are a few things to think about as you prepare to run the first of the gauntlet of standardized tests coming at you this year.

This year’s PSAT tests are on October 10 and October 13. The PSAT contains the same sections and types of questions as does the SAT, but it’s just a little shorter. Some junior-year students and parents wonder if it is wise to prepare for the test as fully as they likely will later on for the SAT or ACT.
