PSAT Score Calculator: Easily Estimate Your Performance

Use this PSAT score calculator to quickly determine your potential performance on the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.

How to Use the PSAT Score Calculator

To use the PSAT score calculator, simply input your Evidence-Based Reading and Writing score and your Math score in the fields provided. Both scores must be a number between 160 and 760. Once you have entered your scores, click the ‘Calculate’ button to see your total PSAT score.

How it Calculates the Results

The calculator adds your Evidence-Based Reading and Writing score to your Math score to find your total PSAT score. Each section score typically ranges from 160 to 760, which means the total score ranges from 320 to 1520.


This calculator does not take into account the selection index score or the National Merit Scholarship Corporation’s (NMSC) requirements. It is only a tool to calculate the total score from the two main sections of the PSAT/NMSQT test.
