Many private schools and boarding schools require the SSAT during their admissions processes, which is why Mindfish offers SSAT Test Prep in Westminster. High scores on the SSAT can make a big difference in whether a student has the chance to attend the school of his or her choice. Designed for students in 3rd through 11th grade, the SSAT has three different levels: Elementary Level (students in 3rd and 4th grade), Middle Level, (students in 5th to 7th grade), and Upper Level (students in 8th to 11th grade). The SSAT test ranges from approximately 2 to 3 hours. While each test level contains similar sections, the intensity and number of questions increase for the higher–level exams. The test results generate three types of reported scores: a raw score, a scaled score, and a percentile ranking.
Raw scores record the number of correct and incorrect answers. Percentile ranking measures how well a student performs compared to other students of the same grade within the past three years. While both scores are equally valuable, most private schools focus on a student’s scaled score. This score is the sum of the verbal, quantitative math, and reading sections, and ranges as follows:
- Elementary Level tests between 900 and 1800
- Middle-Level test between 1320 and 2130
- Upper-Level test between 1500 and 2400
