The other 34,000 high performers are now being named Commended Students on the basis of a national Selection index score of 201, applicable to all program participants without regard to state-by-state distribution. Participants, who scored at or above the commended level, but below their state or selection unit’s Semifinalist qualifying score, are Commended Students.
