Is my PSAT score any good?
I got a 62 in critical reading, 59 in math, and a 61 in writing skills which gave me a 182.
I didn't study for the test at all and i'm just wondering if this would be considered a good score.
It says I scored better than 95% of sophomores in critical reading, 90% in math, and 97% in writing skills. I keep seeing people saying that this score is average so i'm a little confused...

Your score is far better than average.
If you are currently a Sophomore, then yes,
Only 5% of students nationwide have scored higher than you in CR
Only 10% of students nationwide have scored higher than you in math
and, only 3% of students nationwide have scored higher than you in writing.
The score meanings vary depending upon whether you are a Freshman, Sophomore or Junior.

A 182 on the PSAT translates to an 1820 on the SAT which is good, but it won't get you into a school like Harvard or Princeton. The average SAT score is 1500 out of 2400
