SSAT/ISEE (3rd – 8th Grade)
The SSAT (Secondary School Admission Test) and ISEE (Independent School Entrance Exam) are used for admission to US private middle and high schools. Both exams test Math, Reading, and Vocabulary. The major difference between the tests is in how they test your abilities in each of those subjects. As for the math, the ISEE places a heavier emphasis on mathematical reasoning than the SSAT does. To test vocabulary, the SSAT uses synonyms and analogies, while the ISEE uses synonyms and sentence completion. The reading passages on SSAT tend to be shorter than the ISEE, but the SSAT includes a broader range of genres, like poetry. If the schools you're applying to will take either test, our counselors can determine the one that's better suited to your abilities and help you prepare for it.
