The admissions process for private and independent schools can be both long and taxing. From tours and interviews to filling out the application, completing the process is no cakewalk. To move forward in the process, young applicants must overcome an even greater obstacle – earning a high score on the SSAT.
The SSAT relies on preparation and perseverance. But the hallmark of our success comes from our elite group of tutors, which allows us to provide consistently superb instruction. Hailing from the country’s top Universities, each Crimson Review tutor scored within the 95th percentile on their own standardized test, giving them first-hand knowledge of how to beat the SSAT.
To meet the demand of students in Wayne, Malvern, and the surrounding areas, Crimson Review offers a comprehensive and individualized approach to overcoming the daunting SSAT.
Revising the Upper-Level SSAT
Most private schools require the SSAT within their admissions process. Intended for students in grades 3-11, the SSAT has three different testing levels: Elementary (grades 3-4), Middle-Level (grades 5-7), and Upper-Level (grades 8-11).
The Upper-Level SSAT is a multiple-choice test and consists of verbal, quantitative (math), and reading comprehension sections, as well as an unscored writing sample. The Upper-Level SSAT exam lasts approximately 3 hours and generates three types of reported scores: a raw score, a scaled score, and a percentile ranking.
While all three scores have their own value, private schools focus on a student’s scaled score, which is the sum of the verbal, quantitative math, and reading sections. This score ranges between 1500-2400.
