Independent School Entrance Examination(ISEE) Guides and Tips

By ASC A+ Program on 26 March 21 News

Spring is also the season to prepare ISEE!


With COVID being under control, ISEE and Secondary School Admission Test(SSAT) are going to be required for those who are going to apply for the private schools again later this year. There are many important aspects about these exams you need to know as a parent in order to help your child get the ideal results to get admitted to the selected schools.

Firstly, you need to know which exam is best for your child from the following perspective:

  • School requirement and preference
  • ISEE is more difficult in math
  • Students can only take ISEE once every six months, but there is no limit on SSAT

Then, you need to choose the right level for your child, the most common levels are middle and upper levels:

  • Middle level refers to students applying for the middle school program (Grade 6-8)
  • Upper level refers to students applying for the upper school(high school) program (Grade 9-12)


Private Schools typically requires students to submit their exam score by November, therefore, we strongly recommend our students prepare during our April session and the Summer sessions, or sign up for Private Tutoring session to be fully prepared before their real test in October.
