Kaplan Test Prep Launches First Free, Live PSAT Prep, Giving Unprecedented Access to Best-In-Class Instruction for All Aspiring College Applicants

Students Can Prep and Participate at www.kaptest.com/psatlive

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–For many high school students, the PSAT/NMSQT® is more than
practice for the SAT® or ACT® — it’s the first meaningful step on their
path to college, as a high PSAT score can attract notice from colleges
and open the door to scholarship opportunities. In an unprecedented move
to help students achieve their best PSAT scores, Kaplan Test Prep is
launching the first ever free, live PSAT preparation program beginning
October 1, with lessons that cover every section of the exam. Free for
all students, Kaplan’s PSAT Prep Live will give the 3.8 million
students who take the PSAT annually groundbreaking access to live
interactive instruction online, taught by master teachers who can answer
their questions in real time.

“The PSAT is the kickoff to the college admissions process, and a great
score can get students on the college radar for recruitment and
scholarship money,” said Lee Weiss, vice president of college admissions
programs, Kaplan Test Prep. “With $180 million in National Merit
scholarships awarded to top-scoring PSAT takers, we want to help
students achieve their best possible PSAT scores, which is why we
decided to make our best teachers available for free. We’re excited to
provide all students with engaging, motivating content delivered live
from dynamic, expert teachers, which will give them the ability to ask
and have their questions answered in real time — within a community of
other motivated PSAT preppers.”

The eight, one-hour live lessons will begin livestreaming on Saturday,
October 1, 4:00-5:00 pm ET and run through Monday, October 17, and
include four Math Test lessons and four lessons dedicated to the Reading
Test and Writing and Language Test. Among the eight lessons are two
Advanced lessons (one Math, one Verbal) geared towards students who are
competing for National Merit® scholarships. Each lesson will run live
twice, with recordings available for students who were unable to attend
or for students needing a refresher.
