Is it bad if you don't take the NMSQT?Answered
I am a junior and I missed the deadline to sign up for the NMSQT. I want to go to a large public university, so I need to be competitive. Are colleges going to see that I chose not to take it, and take someone that did over me?

PSAT/NMSQT scores are relatively unimportant, and colleges won't mind if you didn't take it! Taking the SAT is more important, so I would focus on taking practice tests instead and signing up for the SAT.
No, you do not submit the score to colleges, it is only a practice SAT and the only thing it is used for is the National Merit Scholarship competition, which is extremely rare to receive.
