My daughter's school is encouraging all sophomores to take the PSAT next month. The sign-up fee is cheap, so that's not an issue, and she really wants to take it. Are there any disadvantages to taking it this year? I don't want her to stress out if she gets a bad score, but it would be helpful for her to know her weaknesses so she can improve before the test actually counts.
I can't think of any other reasons not to take it, but am I missing something?
