The PSAT Math test features two sections that last 25-minutes each. Across both sections, you're required to complete ten grid-ins, or student-produced response questions, and 28 multiple-choice questions. The four math categories represented on the PSAT include:

• Algebra and functions
• Data analysis, statistics and probability

The main purpose of the PSAT is to help you determine whether or not you are ready to sit for the SAT. You will also get a feel for the SAT's format and receive feedback for your trouble areas. The National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) cosponsors the PSAT. By taking the PSAT, you gain access to use the college and career planning resources offered through the NMSC. If you score high on the PSAT, you may be selected to participate in an NMSC scholarship program.
