SSAT Test Day

The day before the test, relax, read a book, get some exercise, and get plenty of sleep. In fact, you should prioritize sleep the entire week before the test as those earlier nights’ sleep will be critical.

On the morning of the test, wake up with ample time to eat a good breakfast and to arrive at the test center at least 30 minutes prior to the start of testing.

Do not attempt to study or cram last-minute information on the night before or day of the test! This will only cause undue stress and anxiety. Now is the time to feel confident in everything you've already done to prepare.

What to bring to the test:
  • Admission ticket
  • A snack
  • Water

Put your snack and water in a clear ziplock bag with your name on it.

For paper/pencil testing:
  • Four #2 pencils

Prohibited items:
  • Calculators
  • Pens
  • Backpacks
  • Cell phones (must be off and cannot be accessed during testing)
  • Scratch paper (provided at computer testing locations)
  • Watches (a clock will be visible in the testing room)
