A distorted wave polarized orbital model and a three-body classical trajectory Monte Carlo method are applied to study the excitation of hydrogen atom by positron impact. The total and differential cross section as a function of the scattering angle of the scattered positron are calculated at 54.4, 100 and 200eV impact energies. Our results are compared with previous theoretical calculations.
