Is a 1600 on the PSAT possible?

A friend of mine claimed that they scored a 1600 on the PSAT, but I thought the maximum score was 1520. Can somebody please clarify if a 1600 is really possible on the PSAT?

You are correct that the maximum score for the PSAT is indeed 1520. The PSAT, or Preliminary SAT, is scored on a scale of 320-1520. This test is a slightly shorter and easier version of the SAT, allowing students to familiarize themselves with the exam's format and content. Therefore, your friend's claim of a 1600 PSAT score is not possible. Maybe they were confusing the PSAT with the SAT, which is scored out of 1600 points.
