Hey there! The average PSAT Math score tends to fall around 490 to 500 for high school students in the United States. The maximum possible Math score on the PSAT is 760, so keep that in mind when considering your results.

Comparing your score to the average can be helpful to gauge where you stand, but it's also important to remember that the SAT has a higher maximum score. The Math section of the SAT goes up to 800 points.

Before setting a target SAT Math score, review the average scores for the colleges you're interested in, as this will give you a better idea of what score range you should aim for. Additionally, consider utilizing a variety of SAT prep resources such as study guides, official College Board practice tests, or a service like CollegeVine to aid you in improving your score.
