i was browsing the College Board website today,
and noticed that in addition to the "PSAT" (normally taken in the junior year),
they also offer a "PSAT 8/9" and "PSAT 10" test.
has anyone had their daughter sit for one of these versions of the test during grades 8,9, and/or 10?
and if so, has it been beneficial for their recruitment?
I ask, because my DD is most likely to pursue an "academic path" toward recruitment,
which generally translates to a later timetable (sophomore year at the earliest, but more likely junior year with PSAT scores),
because of the Admissions selectivity with regard to academics.
I'm wondering, if she's playing on an "exposure team" now, how to make the most of that?
If these early PSAT tests are generally viewed as legitimate indicators of academic potential by college coaches,
then it makes sense to take them. Plus, early practice on the SAT can't hurt, in general.
