on the SSAT
SSAT stands for "Secondary School Admission Test.
It is a required examination for students who wish
to pursue secondary school education in an independent
school in America. If you are considering sending
your child to the USA or his/her secondary (i.e.,
middle/high school) education, the SSAT is required.
The SSAT is a multiple choice test comprising verbal,
quantitative (math) and reading comprehension sections.
In addition to these, the test also includes an essay
writing portion which requires the student to write
his/her responses to a topic statement. The writing
portion is not graded but it will be sent together with
the SSAT test score to the schools that you specify.
The SSAT is designed for students in grades 5 to 11
(i.e., ages 11 to 17). There are twol levels of the
test - Upper Level (grades 8 to 11), and Lower Level
(grades 5 to 7). The distribution of the 5 sections
is as follows:

you plan to take the SSAT soon, you may wish to consider
taking a preparation course to help you achieve your
maximum potential score. Our SSAT course is suitable
for students in Singapore who are planning to pursue
their secondary school education in America. As the
SSAT test is an American test, certain terminologies,
test format as well as test psychology may be unfamiliar
to local school students. Our course will prepare students
fully for these nuances while strengthening the student's
overall vocabulary, reading, writing and mathematical
skills. As most students in Singapore face greater problems
in the Verbal and Reading Comprehension sections of
the SSAT, our course is geared more towards strengthening
the students' abilities in these areas while not compromising
their mathematical abilities as the Quantitative sections
of the test can be tricky at times as well.

Students are required to attend classes twice a week
for at least 1 hour each time. For best results, students
