The alternate entry request should include your name and home address, the contact information of the person making the request, the name and address of your high school, and a brief explanation of why you missed the test. Do not delay; the earlier you write, the more options you will have for scheduling test dates.

Juniors will receive their PSAT results on or about December 7th online from the College Board. Once your PSAT/NMSQT scores are released, you’ll be able to access it through your College Board online account. If you don’t have a College Board account yet, it’s easy to create one. 

To make a College Board account, complete a simple form, and choose your username and password. If there’s any chance you have already created a College Board account, don’t make a new one. Multiple accounts can make it difficult to get your PSAT/NMSQT score, and other important information. Please attempt to retrieve your credentials by using our Forgot Username or Forgot Password tools. 

Once you have an account, you can go to student score reports and log in to see your PSAT/NMSQT score report and scores for any other tests you've taken in the SAT Suite of Assessments. 

The PSAT/NMSQT is scored between 320 and 1520 points. Your total score will be the result of adding your Math score (160-720 points), and your Reading and Writing and Language scores (160-720 points). Your PSAT/NMSQT score shows you how prepared you are for the SAT and helps you create a personalized SAT study plan through Official SAT Practice on Khan Academy

Your PSAT/NMSQT Selection Index score could qualify you for recognition in the National Merit Scholarship Program. If your PSAT/NMSQT Selection Index score places you among the 50,000 high scorers who qualify for program recognition, you will be notified through your school next September.
