SSAT stands for Secondary School Admission Test. It is a multiple-choice standardized exam used by many private, independent, and charter schools to screen their applicants. The test measures knowledge and abilities in three areas – Verbal, Quantitative (Math), and Reading Comprehension. Test takers are also required to write an essay, but unlike the other sections, the essay is not given a score by the test administrators. Instead, it is copied and sent to the school(s) the student has applied to.

Use the free SSAT practice test questions below to get a better understanding of the SSAT exam. Take advantage of this valuable resource to pinpoint your strengths and weaknesses. There are three different exams, geared toward different grade levels: Elementary, Middle Level, and Upper Level.

No matter which SSAT test a student takes, the format is the same. There are two Quantitative sections, each containing 25 questions, and lasting 30 minutes. The verbal section is also 30 minutes, and contains 60 questions. There are 40 questions in the reading comprehension section, which has a time limit of 40 minutes. All three versions of the SSAT are quite challenging, and students should be well-prepared before they attempt the exam. Mometrix Academy features many videos that can help students get ready for the SSAT test.
