Is the PSAT mainly math-focused, English-focused, or balanced?

Hey everyone! Quick question – is the PSAT more focused on math or English, or is it a good 50/50 split like the SAT? I'm stronger in English and wondering if I need to up my math prep!

Hello! The PSAT aims to mirror the structure of the SAT, so you'll find that it has a balanced mix of both Math and Evidence-Based Reading and Writing. So, yes, it's like the SAT with a 50/50 split. The test is designed to assess skills evenly across both subjects. However, if you feel stronger in English, it might be beneficial to spend some extra time reinforcing your math skills. A balanced preparation approach can help you feel more confident in both sections. One strategy is to identify specific areas of weakness in math through practice tests and to focus on improving in those areas. Remember, doing well in both sections can really help maximize your overall score. Best of luck with your preparation!
