4. Bad Information Could Cost You a Scholarship

Ohio - More and more homeschooled students are winning National Merit
Scholarships. This is partly due to the fact that one-on-one
instruction in the home is an excellent way to learn, but it is also
partly because more and more homeschoolers are participating in the
Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Testing. The PSAT is a necessary
prerequisite for the National Merit Scholarship. One child almost
lost his opportunity to compete because of bad instructions by local
public school officials.
