 Both the Middle and Upper level SSAT consist of verbal, quantitative (math) and reading comprehension sections. The verbal questions test your vocabulary, verbal reasoning, and ability to relate ideas logically. The quantitative (math) questions test your ability to solve problems involving arithmetic, basic algebra and geometry, and concepts. The reading comprehension section tests your ability to understand what you read. All tests are printed and administered in English.

In addition to the sections listed above, the test includes a writing sample portion. The style of the writing sample will differ depending on which level test you take. Your essay is not graded, but a copy will be sent to schools or consultant.

Administrations of the SSAT in 2012-13 will also include an experimental section of 16 questions. This section is unscored, but features questions that may appear on future versions of the SSAT.
