The National Merit Corporation released the list of this year’s National Merit Scholarship Qualifiers. Students were selected as qualifiers based on the results of the PSAT taken in the fall of their junior year. Qualifiers represent students who scored roughly in the top 1 percent of test-takers by state in the nation.
Of the roughly 1.6 million students who took the PSAT last fall, approximately 50,000 were selected as qualifiers. From the 50,000 qualifiers, approximately 16,000 were named semifinalists. The semifinalists will have the opportunity to compete for scholarships and recognition by colleges and universities during the admissions process. Finalists will be selected during the school year and announced in the spring of 2019.
Congratulations to all of Tower Hill’s Qualifiers!
