Taking the PSAT more than once? Why?
My daughter is a sophomore who took the PSAT this past fall. That sounded great to me and I think it was a good experience for her. But then I heard that other kids (sophomores and juniors) took it a second and even third time. My question is why? Is it not true that you can take the SAT more than once and colleges will use the one with the best score? What is the benefit of taking the PSAT more than once? Is it just to practice and review and try and do better? Why not just do that with the SATs if colleges will only look at the best one? I guess I just don't get it and would like to be enlightened. When I was in high school, I took the PSAT once and the SATs a couple of times. That was it.
