Advantage Testing SSAT Q&A

How many times can I take the SSAT?

Middle and Upper Level students in the U.S. can take the SSAT up to eight times per testing year (defined as August 1 through July 31)—up to two computer-based SSATs (either at home or at Prometric Test Centers), five paper-based SSATs at standard test sites, and one paper-based SSAT Flex test.

Elementary Level students can take the SSAT up to two times per testing year.

Note that even though we recommend that students take the SSAT multiple times, very few students are ready to take the test in the spring and summer before submitting applications. Thus, most students take as many tests as possible during the fall and winter in advance of their application deadlines. Refer to our recommended timeline for more information to help you plan your preparation and testing schedule.
