Months of practice and nearly three hours of testing have come to an end—you’ve completed the SSAT!
As you exit the testing room, release a big sigh of relief and let thoughts of bubble sheets leave your mind. Maybe even think about what you’ll be eating for a celebratory dinner.
After you’ve had some well-deserved rest, your mind may return to the test, reflecting on the reading passages, rethinking the harder math questions, and obsessing over when you will receive scores. Now that you’ve done everything you could, waiting can be very difficult. But, you’ll have your test scores within only two weeks!
As soon as your test is done being scored, your scores will be available online. You can log in to your SSAT account here to access the scores and decide if you’d like to send them to schools. If you requested scores be mailed to you, it may take another week to receive them. While scores will always be available within two weeks, depending on how many people took the test at a given time, they may be released sooner. If you want to know the minute scores are released, you can sign up to receive a text or email alert from the SSAT.
Once your scores are up, interpreting all of those different numbers can be difficult. You can check out this guide to learn how to read an SSAT score report and understand your results.
