Many private and parochial high schools require applicants to take the High School Placement Test, or HSPT test. Most students who take it do so in the 8th are very important, as they can be the deciding factor in whether a student is accepted or not. Because many colleges often give preference to applicants from private schools, your HSPT score can have a massive impact on your long-term future.

The test is given twice a year, in the spring and fall. It is a multiple choice exam, and it lasts two and a half hours. There are almost 300 questions, covering Verbal Skills, Math, Quantitative Skills, Language, and Reading. Retaking the test is strongly discouraged. In fact, the policy is that whichever score is lower is the one that gets reported, so taking the HSPT again and getting a higher score is essentially pointless. You’ll want to make sure you’re ready to do your very best the first time you take the HSPT test, and you’ll find an extensive library of free videos here on Mometrix Academy to help you prepare.
