The SSAT is used as an entrance exam for many private schools. It is designed for students entering grades 9 – 12 to show a student’s abilities in math, language, and reading.
The SSAT tests your understanding of verbal and mathematics concepts. The test takes a total of 170 minutes, including two 5 minute breaks following sections 2 and 4. The SSAT is divided into five sections:
|Section||Number of questions||Time allotted|
|Verbal||60 Questions 30 Synonyms
|Quantitative Reasoning||Two 25 question sections(Math computation and reasoning)||60 minutes (two 30 minute sections)|
|Reading Comprehension||40 questions||40 minutes|
|Writing Sample||One writing prompt||25 minutes|
|Experimental Section (Not graded)||16 Questions 6 verbal
All questions on the SSAT are multiple choice questions except the Essay. Each multiple choice question has a question or question stem and five answer choices. Of the choices, only one answer is the correct or “best” answer. The essay, although not scored, is a response to a writing prompt in the student’s own handwriting. The response for the essay will be no longer than two pre-lined pages, front and back.
The first two sections of the Upper Level SSAT, Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning, measure your reasoning ability.

A Word From Our Students!
“My daughter needed help and I called Suprex. In less than a month, she received A’s. That’s how well she did with Suprex Learning and I want to thank them. Upon graduating she received honors in math.”
-Dellita Garraway, Algebra Student
“The tutor was well matched with my son. He was able to teach him what he didn’t understand. I was happy with his knowledge of the subject and with the match.”
-Muad McAndrews, Algebra Student
“We met the Director, AJ Saleem when he was starting the company. We’ve seen the company grow and it has continued in a great direction. The tutors are carefully selected and matched with your student; if the match does not work, Suprex is very willing to match a tutor with your student’s learning style. I love the convenience of having tutors come to my house; tutors were very good at communicating when they would have to change the tutoring schedule. Because of the variance in test days at my child’s schools, I appreciated the fact that tutors could help my son just a day or two prior to the test. The tutors would even switch their schedule if necessary to fit my child’s test schedule.”
Collin Brant, Calculus 1 student
“My daughter was struggling in Pre Cal and her tutor Imran quickly helped her. She was a 70 average student and after a month of tutoring her last progress report was a 92. She is now confident and making A’s and B’s on tests, not 30s. We are very pleased.”
Lauren Hunter, Pre Calculus student
“My son who was in Calculus BC needed little boost in helping with his subject. We tried 3 different tutors and were not satisfied with the outcome. Either tutor was not clicking or the location of tutoring was a bad choice. Googling for tutor, we came across Suprex Learning. We were kind of reluctant and wary of the tutor we are going to get. After talking with front office Amer and Ajmal, we agreed that we are going to try a tutor for a week or so. Anyways the grades started improving for my son and he was really comfortable with the tutor and the location which was my own home.”
“The tutoring session was very positive. The tutor was exceptional and quickly developed a rapport with my child. Reinforced what was being taught in the class. Complimented and gave positive feedback to my child on his work and progress”
Branden Northcutt, Math student
