PSAT® or the Preliminary SAT Exam is the best stepping stone to scoring high on the SAT which is taken later, usually in the 11th grade. PSAT itself, SAT’s younger sibling, comes in several flavors: PSAT® 8/9 is targeted at students in grades 8 or 9; PSAT® 10 is for students studying in 10th grade; and PSAT® 11 or NMSQT (National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test) is for those in 11th grade. For U.S. citizens, regardless of country of residence, NMSQT, depending on the score, will provide scholarship opportunities from College Board.
When should one take the PSAT? Uwezo recommends to do that in 9th as well as 10th grades. Being very similar to the SAT, PSAT® makes for good practice while getting the students acquainted with timed tests. U.S. citizens can take the NMSQT in the 11th grade to potentially qualify for a scholarship. Remember, the PSAT format is more or less the same as the SAT’s.
Uwezo’s PSAT offering consists of 40+ hours of instruction, between math and English, followed by mock tests. During the teaching part, students will practice, by concept and topic, offline and online, with mocks starting after all teaching has been completed. By the way, if one attends Uwezo’s SAT training, no separate coaching is required for the NMSQT.

Uwezo Learning’s SAT coaching involves a total of 52 hours of in-class instruction, followed by up to 12 or 15 mocks (Please see Why Uwezo SAT). First, 40 hours are spent on covering SAT English and SAT Math.

After coaching is complete, practice entails doing 12 to 15 mocks with an average of four hours per mock. Reviews are provided for the mocks to identify areas of improvement and clear doubts.

Like our SAT offering, Subject SAT mocks are also analysed, and a detailed report provided – by using Omar™ – for you to understand areas of weakness. Most of our students score a perfect 800 in Subject SATs, with an average score of 790.
