The National Merit Scholarship Corporation recognized the top 50,000 of the 1.5 million students who took the 2012 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT). Approximately one-third of the 50,000 were recognized as semi-finalists and will go on to compete for finalist status and National Merit scholarships. More than two-thirds received letters of commendation. Commended Students do not continue in competition for National Merit scholarships, but they are considered for other scholarships because of their exceptional academic promise.
