What you need to know about SSAT

Key takeaways

  • SSAT stands for the Secondary School Admissions Test, and it’s used for admission to private middle schools and high schools. 
  • Different levels of the test are offered depending on your grade level. The Upper Level is designed for applicants in 8th grade and above. The Middle Level is for applicants in 5th, 6th and 7th grade, and the Elementary Level is for applicants in 3rd and 4th grade.
  • The SSAT measures three constructs: Quantitative (two sections for Upper and Middle Levels, one section for Elementary Level); Reading Comprehension and Verbal Reasoning. The test also contains an unscored essay and an Experimental test (Upper and Middle Levels only).
  • The SSAT test is offered once a month from October to April, and once in June.
  • The duration of the test is 3 hours and 5 minutes (Upper and Middle Levels); 1 hour and 50 minutes (Elementary Level)
  • Students may send the score results to the schools they wish to apply to at any time (before they sit for the test, after they sit for the test, or after they have viewed their scores) and there is no charge for sending scores to schools through the online SSAT account. Students have score choice and may report only the scores they wish for a school to see.
  • Candidates wishing to take the test may register online  through  the Enrollment Management Association website www.ssat.org
