To enter the 2023 program, 1.6 million juniors took the 2021 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT). The national pool of 16,000 semifinalists included the highest-scoring entrants in each state. To become a finalist, a semifinalist must have had an outstanding academic record throughout high school, earned SAT scores that confirmed the earlier performance on the qualifying test, and demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities. Approximately 7,500 National Merit Scholarships will be awarded this spring.
