PSAT Scoring Timeline Concerns

Stressed junior here... just wondering, after taking the PSAT, how long does it usually take for scores to come back? I'm trying to plan my study schedule for the SAT and knowing my PSAT score would really help me focus my prep.

Hello stressed junior – first of all, take a deep breath, you're handling a lot, and you're taking the right steps by planning ahead! Generally, PSAT scores are released about 6 to 8 weeks after you take the test. They're typically available online through the College Board website. Your school might also receive the scores a bit earlier and could distribute them through your student account or during a meeting with your counselor.

Since you're planning your SAT study schedule, use this time to review the concepts you already know will be on the SAT, like math formulas or grammar rules. That way, when your PSAT scores come in, you can adjust your study plan to focus on the areas where you need the most improvement. Also, remember that the PSAT is a great diagnostic tool, but it's not the end-all-be-all. Keep consistent with your studying and maybe start taking practice SATs under timed conditions to build up your stamina. Hang in there, you're doing great and your dedication will pay off!
