SSAT

The SSAT is a standardized test used by admission officers to assess the abilities of students seeking to enroll in an independent school. It measures the basic verbal, math, and reading skills students need for successful performance in future study. Especially for literacy, critical thinking, accuracy and effectiveness are the three core elements of elite screening by private schools. 

 

Therefore, regardless of whether you are preparing for a private school or not, the SSAT exam is the most effective tool that can help children break through their own limitations and improve their thinking and learning methods.

SAT

SAT is considered as an academic test rather than an English language test. It is a comprehensive ability to examine writing and critical thinking, summarize, organize information, infer and analyze. In other words: SAT is a more advanced ability to examine the application of language and writing in English.

 

As mentioned in the official website College Board:

The new test is more focused on the skills and knowledge at the heart of education. It measures:

  • What you learn in high school

  • What you need to succeed in college
