Should I be thrilled?-SSAT

<p>This morning I got my SSAT scores and I was really excited. I play multiple sports competitively and I enjoy math and science. MY father is an alumni of Lawrenceville and both of my cousins have gone. I program robots and I am entering in a competition for firefighting robots at trinity college in march or april. I think I did well on my interviews because I felt really confident on my way in. Last year I lived in France and I am fully functional in french.</p>

<p>Your SSAT Scores</p>

<p>Upper Level Score Range : 500-800</p>

<p>Verbal Score 758
(Personal Score Range: 737 - 779, SSAT Percentile 93%)</p>

<p>Math Score 737
(Personal Score Range: 716 - 758, SSAT Percentile 73%)</p>

<p>Reading Score 743
(Personal Score Range: 722 - 764, SSAT Percentile 98%)</p>

<p>Total Score 2238
(Personal Score Range: NA, SSAT Percentile 94%)</p>

<p>How would I fair at Lawrencville or andover. Would I get in?</p>

<p>Um.... I think u mean 93 % for math. Great scores!!</p>

<p>No its copy and pasted from the email. I wish. Thanks though.</p>

<p>i got a 2235 and a 93%, this is so weird!!!</p>

<p>It is 93 percent tho, I averaged out the three with a 93 instead of a 74 and got 94 %. 73 doesn't seem right, the ssat score would be much lower, unless the students this year all got amazing math scores.</p>

<p>i got 761 in math and ended up with 85% so his score is right...</p>

<p>I got a 761 in math, and I got 72 percent...</p>

<p>Wait, so if you got such a high score and less than ninety percentile, does that mean that the testers who took the test with you all got amazing? <em>Gulp</em> I'm nervous to see my scores now.</p>

<p>what grade are you in? BoardingSt, cause I'm in eighth, that's probably why we got different scores.</p>

<p>I'm going into 10th.</p>

<p>My daughter, an 8th grade girl, got a 791 on math and this was 98th percentile. She skipped 2 and got 2 wrong. </p>

<p>Note that the percentile of the total score is NOT the average of the percentiles of the individual scores.</p>

<p>Oh okay, thanks for the clarification.</p>

<p>what grade are u in?</p>

<p>i got a perfect 800 on math but in terms of total ssat score i only got a 2241 which meant 91% national percentile</p>

<p>Just took the test today and ended up skipping 5 total. Not sure what to think. Is it still possible to get an above 95% score?</p>

<p>^^Cherry, all depends on how the other students of your gender and in your grade level who took the test TODAY did. It's the whole reason the SSAT, while somewhat valuable, is still such a miniscule snapshot of the person.</p>

<p>@acdcrocks: how many did you get wrong/omit in each section? i took the dec ssat today and i thought it might give me a general idea. thanks</p>

<p>I took my SSAT on Saturday. I'm in 8th grade (girl, 12, public school)</p>

<p>I skipped 2 in the first math section, 0 in reading comprehension, 2 in verbal, 4 in the second math section. Math was easier than I expected it to be( I'm REALLY not good at math), reading comprehension was suprisingly hard, verbal was SUPER easy except for two questions.</p>

<p>the bad part is that for me, when I thought a section was "super easy," I did terrible on it, and when a section was "incredibly hard," I received a better score...</p>

<p>Is everyone here a genius but me? Damn. I got a 2100 on my SSAT and received a 70 percentile in total. So stop being so smart with your 2200s and 2300s and 98 percentiles in math. It makes me feel dumb.</p>
