### PSAT Math Objectives

The PSAT math test contains 40 multiple-choice questions and eight grid-ins, or student-produced response questions throughout two sections. You have 70 minutes to complete the math section. The three emphasized content areas found in the PSAT math test include:

• Data analysis and problem solving
• Heart of Algebra

The PSAT's main objective is to give you an idea of how prepared you are to take the SAT. You will also develop an idea of what you can expect the SAT math portion to look like. The test results show you what you're efficient in and which areas need the most attention. Due to partial sponsorship from the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC), you have the chance to be chosen to participate in an NMSC scholarship program. The NMSC also gives you the opportunity to use career and college planning tools.
