Registering for an Official SSAT

How to Register

To register for an official SSAT test, you must first create an account with the SSAT website (if you haven’t already). You can do that by clicking here. Once you’ve created an account, login to your portal. Then, click SSAT Testing > Register for SSAT. If you need help with this, we can help you over the phone.

Scoring over Multiple Tests

  • You can re-take the SSAT many times. Keep in mind that schools have registration deadlines, so that due date naturally limits how many tests you can take.
  • If you do the test more than once, you can choose to submit the best score out of all your attempts. When registering for a test, the site will ask if you want to automatically send your scores to schools. We do not suggest this — instead, we suggest reviewing them before they get sent off. This way, you can choose to send in only one score: your best one.
  • Some schools “superscore” over multiple tests; this means that if you have a high score in math on one test, but a high score in reading and verbal on another test, the school will consider the best sections over both tests, creating a “super” scored version of your results. Superscoring is not official advertised or facilitated by the SSAT. So, to find out if a school superscores, you will have to e-mail them or us.
  • Scoring over multiple tests and superscoring are things we can help you with.

Learning Disabilities and Accommodations

Students with documented disabilities (including ADD/ADHD) can apply for accommodations. These can include extra time, smaller groups, or a calculator. Below is a step-by-step guide on how to make that request, as well as more information on what types of accommodations are available.

Testing Options and Dates

What to Bring on Test Day

These lists apply to all test types (in-person and at-home tests).

Mandatory Items

  • No. 2 pencils
    • You should have at least 3 pre-sharpened pencils
    • Get the ones with erasers on the backs of them
  • Clear water bottle without labels
  • For in-person testing (paper-based or prometric), print your admission ticket (and print your testing accommodations if you have them).
  • For computer-based testing (at-home or parametric), bring 2 sheets of scrap paper (each sheet must be blank on both sides)

Prohibited Items

  • No calculators
  • No cell phones
    • For in-person testing, if you bring your cell phone into the testing room, it must be off. The invigilator will give students a basket to put their phones before the test starts
    • For at-home testing, a parent/guardian can manage a cell phone for technical support
  • No erasers
    • You can use the little erasers attached to the backs of your wooden No. 2 pencils
  • No mechanical pencils
  • No sharpeners
    • I recommend purchasing a pack of pre-sharpened pencils
  • No pens
  • No highlighters
  • No rulers
  • No watches or fitness trackers
  • No headphones
  • No hats or coats
  • No bags, backpacks or purses
  • No large jewelry
  • Due to the age of the test-takers, no photo ID is necessary, but I would recommend you have one on hand just in case.


Sessions are held at the Genesis Tutoring centre in Pointe-Claire, or online. See our centre here.

No, you cannot. On the math section students have to do their calculations by hand. If you have a learning disability, you may be eligible for a calculator. Learn about how to register for disability accommodations here, or contact us.
Each tutor has their own availability and schedule. Many of our tutors are able to accommodate after-school hours and weekends. Please call or text 438 800 7069 for this week's availability.
