How to Prepare for SSAT Test

The Secondary School Admission Test (SSAT) consists of two parts: a brief essay, and a multiple-choice aptitude test which measures your ability to solve mathematics problems, to use language, and to comprehend what yor read.

The test is administered on two levels:

  • Lower (for students currently in grades 5-7)
  • Upper (for students currently in grades 8-11)

Many editions of the test exist to ensure that no student takes the same SSAT twice. All tests are printed in English. The test is timed and divided into five sections. You will be given 25 minutes for the writing sample, 40 minutes for the reading section, and 30 minutes each for the remaining multiple-choice sections.

Reading Town program is not score-oriented, but rather through our programs, students can successfully prepare for the SSAT and expect high scores.
