National Merit Scholarship Program Commended Students and National Merit Semifinalist (Fall of 2023)

 

Each year nearly 1.3 million students from approximately 21,000 high schools enter the National Merit Scholarship Program by sitting for the PSAT/NMSQT (and meeting other program entry requirements).  About 34,000 students are recognized as COMMENDED STUDENTS for their exceptional academic promise as a result of their performance on the PSATs they took last Fall.  These students were among the top 50,000 scorers on the test.  This makes them in the top 4% of all students who took the test in 2023.  

 

This year Mount Olive High School had 9 students qualify for this designation.  This is the largest number of students to be named COMMENDED STUDENTS in MOHS history.  

They are, in alphabetical order:

  • VINCENT ANG

  • GABRIELLA HARMON

  • ARADHYA JAIN

  • AANYA KHANDERIA

  • MOHAMMAD MAHMOOD

  • HASSAN SYED

Additionally, 16,000 students (top 1%) are named National Merit Scholarship Program Semifinalists.  This year MOHS has one Semifinalist
