Congratulations to Naveen Bhatia '18 and Michelle Leung '18 who have been named National Merit Scholarship Finalists for 2018.
Of the 1.6 million entrants who take the PSATs, approximately 50,000 with the highest Selection Index scores (calculated by doubling the sum of the Reading, Writing and Language, and Math Test scores) qualify for recognition in the National Merit Scholarship Program. In September, these high scorers are notified through their schools that they have qualified as either a Commended Student or Semifinalist.
In February, some 15,000 Semifinalists are notified by mail at their home addresses that they have advanced to Finalist standing. Congratulations to our students for this impressive achievement.
