What's the Maximum PSAT Score?

Okay, so I know that the PSAT isn't the be all end all, but I'm curious – what's the highest score you can actually get?

10 days ago

The scoring system for the PSAT differs slightly from that of the SAT. The highest possible score you can receive on the PSAT is a 1520. This scale breaks down between two sections—Evidence-Based Reading and Writing, and Math—each contributing up to 760 points to your total score. Additionally, each section ranges from 160 to 760, rather than from 200 to 800 as in the SAT. However, please note that despite the differences in top scores, the level of difficulty between the tests is very similar. The grade scaling is just adjusted to account for the slightly less complex content on the PSAT.
