eprep test prep videoThis is the fourth and final video focused on helping young students and their parents understand the basics of the SSAT test. What is the SSAT you ask? See the first SSAT video focused on 5th & 6th graders for the answer :)

Students in the 10th and 11th grades will take the “Upper Level” SSAT test, which is geared toward students in grades 8 all the way up to grade 11 (Junior Year). Join me in this video as I discuss what you can expect on the SSAT.

SSAT Test Prep for 10th and 11th Graders (transcript)

First bit of advice: don’t stress out about the test; it is not that big a deal. The SSAT is not going to make or break you in the admissions process. Just go in, do the best you can and be done with it. Your parents are going to love you regardless of how you do on test day!

You guys have to understand that you are taking the upper level test. The upper level SSAT test has been designed to challenge 8th, 9th, 10th, and 11th graders. You are at the higher end of that. You will be taking a test that also challenges 8th and 9th graders. The material for 8th and 9th graders will come at the beginning of each section. Therefore, when you take the test you are likely to blow through the first half or the first two thirds of any given section. You are going to get through that initial material very quickly.

You are going to have a lot of time for the material at the end. That part of the test has been designed to challenge you. So when you get to the end of the test, be alert. Hopefully you are in a good groove by then and warmed up. Throw everything you have into it. Just skip the ones you can not answer. Do not start guessing wildly.

What is likely to happen is this: You are going to get through to the last question and feel like you have 5 or 10 minutes left before time is going to be called. This is what I have seen a lot of older kids do: They wind up going back to the questions at the beginning and re-thinking and misinterpreting them. They end up changing some answers and messing up on the SSAT scores.

Remember, this test has been designed to challenge 8th and 9th graders and they are given the same amount of time as you! That is probably the appropriate time for them but too much time for you. So when you get to the end and you have that extra 5 or 10 minutes, please do not go back and start changing right answers to wrong answers. You are probably better off just putting your head down, relaxing and waiting for time to be called. Then you pick your head up and you dig right into the next section. That is the way you can maximize your SSAT score.
