When to take the SSAT?

<p>Am I late?
I'm a 7th grade student. Age 13.
I know of international dates, but am I suppose to take it this school year?
I am hoping to be accepted into private schooling for 9th grade.</p>

<p>Ooh..
The last international date is June 12th, and I am not ready for verbal section abuse!</p>

<p>I received my Princeton Review book today.
Your opinions on it? (harder than the test?) </p>

<p>Reply PLEASE, I am about to explode. (I am exploding about the test. What about taking the test? What about GETTING THE MARCH ADMISSION LETTER)</p>

<p>No need to worry. In order to apply for 9th grade you will need to take the SSAT after August 1st, 2010. The November 14th, December 12th and January 9th tests are all done in international locations. Even if you were to take the test in June it wouldn't count as SSAT scores are wiped clean as of the end of July. Good luck!</p>

<p>Thank you, Sue.</p>

<p>I was about to haul major studying, walk in fees, and stress.</p>

<p>And how would that work?
If the admission letters are sent in at March, why would they hold dates after that? Is that for just confidence? (I might as well have tried that)</p>

<p>To relieve some stress,
Has my current curriculum prepared me well enough?
7th grade:
Math- Started Geometry, finished algebra 1. (A+)
English- Most famous book read, To Kill a Mockingbird<a href="A">/u</a></p>

<p>My math teacher told me I will understand the SSAT fully, but I am more stressed out about the Verbal and English.</p>

<p>Thank you, very much.</p>

<p>The June SSAT scores can be used by students applying to schools at the last minute or to schools with rolling admissions. Many students also use them as a practice exam so that they can get more information about their chances at various schools and about their relative strengths and weaknesses at test takers.</p>

<p>It sounds like your academic preparation is on track. Prepare for the SSAT but don't stress too much about content. The biggest value test prep materials offer is in helping you learn how to take the test. For instance, unlike most tests you've taken before, it will probably not be to your advantage to answer every question on the upper-level SSAT, the test you'll be taking as an 8th grader. The test will contain some materials meant for 9th, 10th or 11th graders and you lose a 1/4 point for every answer you get wrong, so you'll want to skip some answers, something that is not always easy for kids used to completing tests.</p>

<p>Hey Sue quick question, I'll be applying as a repeat 9th grader next fall and on Exeter's website they say that for 9th and 10th grade applicants you need to send in the SSAT or ISEE and for 11th Grade the PSAT. I will most likely be taking the PSAT at my local HS next October because they give the PSAT to all students grades 9-12 that way 9th and 10th grade students can get used to the PSAT/SAT format from an early age. My question is, if I score relatively high on the PSAT, do you think Exeter/Deerfield and a few other schools would accept it in place of the SSAT/ISEE ? I might just phone the admissions office and ask but if you know the answer it would be greatly appreciated.</p>

<p>Thanks</p>

<p>Ask your interviewer or just e-mail admissions. I have to see if I can submit my PSAT scores instead of the SSAT too.</p>

<p>Yeah because it could save me money at the same time too so it would be beneficial but I'm only going to send it if I get 85% +.</p>

<p>I could guess, but 2010's right. The best way to get an answer to this question is to ask the school's admissions office directly.</p>

<p>Yeah, that's what I'll do in the fall.</p>

<p>In my opinion the PSAT is alot easier than the SSAT. I absolutely hate the analogies section and always get less than 70% on verbal. Didn't the SAT drop anaologies for some reason when they switched to the new SAT?</p>

<p>I have no clue, I mean my older brother (A Sophmore) he is a B Grade student but he is doing the IB next year so he is pretty smart but anyway he took the PSAT in the Fall and he didn't study and he got 70-80% in all sections which isn't bad since he didn't study so I figure if I study a bit, I can get a 90% on all sections but I don't know for sure if it's really that easy...</p>

<p>I always get perfect scores on the math sections. I feel that the verbal section is easier since it is like sentence completion and finding the error instead of analogies and synonyms. It depends on what kind of person you are. I hate analogies and synonyms but another person may hate sentence completion and error finding.</p>

<p>When I took the ISEE they had Quantative somethings and it was really hard, I got like a 57% on that and the other sections were in the 70% but I didn't really study enough or at all, this year I am going to do it right :)</p>
