How do I submit my PSAT scores to colleges?

Hey there, juniors and wise seniors! Quick question: I'm trying to figure out how to send my PSAT scores to colleges, is that something I should be doing, or do they not really care about PSAT scores? And if it's important, how would I go about doing that?

Colleges don't require you to submit your PSAT scores as part of the admission process. The PSAT is mainly a practice test for the SAT and acts as the qualifying test for the National Merit Scholarship Program. It's not considered an official score for college admissions.

Instead, colleges will be looking at your SAT or ACT scores, your GPA, extracurricular activities, essays, letters of recommendation, and other achievements. Focus your efforts on preparing for the SAT or ACT. You can send those scores through the testing agencies when you're applying to colleges.

Just remember to check each college's testing policy, as some schools have become test-optional, which means you don't have to submit standardized test scores if you feel they don't accurately represent your academic ability. Concentrate on the aspects of your application that colleges consider, and good luck!
