I just got my son's PSAT scores in the mail. They were terrible. I'm not exaggerating. Seriously, I want to cry..again. In having conversations with his teachers over the past few years, I've always known that he just doesn't test well, but this is too much. He scored in the 7th percentile in the math section. SEVENTH! He only got 7/38 questions right. His math teacher recommended him for advanced geometry this year, how does he score in the 7th percentile?! The school sent a detailed score report that showed all of his answers and the correct answers along with the test booklet he had on that day. I am terrible at math and I was able to answer some of the questions correctly. I asked him about a few of them and he said that the way the questions were worded was confusing. He's able to answer them correctly when you ask the questions directly, so where is the disconnect? His scores in critical reading and writing weren't much better. He scored in the 11th and 36th percentile respectively. I just don't understand. This will seriously hamper his college options. I don't see how any measure of SAT prep will help him. He's currently taking advanced geometry, advanced English, and AP European History and is an A & B student. How can there be such a disparity between his grades and his test performance? What do I do? I want to cry again.
