Over 1.6 million students took the Preliminary SAT in October 2016 and entered the nationwide National Merit Scholarship Program. In April 2017, NMSC identified the 50,000 highest scorers. About 16,000 of those high performers were designated as Semifinalists on a state representational basis. Semifinalists have the opportunity to continue in the Merit Scholarship® competition and advance to Finalist standing in February 2018 by meeting a number of additional requirements. About 90% of the Semifinalists are expected to attain Finalist standing.
The other 34,000 high performers are named as Commended Students based on a national Selection Index score of 211, applicable to all program participants without regard to state-by-state distribution. Participants who scored at or above 211, but below their state Semifinalist Selection Index score, are Commended Students.
