Advantage Testing SSAT Q&A

What is a good score on the SSAT?

What determines a good score on the SSAT depends on your goals. Different schools place different emphases on test scores, school transcripts, teacher recommendations, student essays, personal interviews, parent statements, and other criteria. Thus, each school will evaluate candidates differently.

Even more than other standardized tests, what determines a good SSAT score depends on your performance relative to other students at your grade level. Each level of the SSAT is given to students entering different grade levels. When you take the SSAT, you will get percentiles for your grade level and gender (some single-gender schools find gender-specific scoring most relevant for admissions decisions). The EMA does not release overall SSAT percentile charts for all test takers.
