The Secondary School Admission Test (SSAT) is a standardized test that is required for all students applying to U.S. boarding schools.

  • SSAT Middle Level: for students currently in grade 5-7
  • SSAT Upper Level: for students currently in grade 8-11


The Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE) is used by many independent schools in the U.S., as well as some international schools in Hong Kong, including Hong Kong International School (HKIS), as part of their admissions process. The ISEE focuses on Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, Reading Comprehension, Mathematics Achievement, and a 30-minute writing assessment. The ISEE tests your child’s reasoning skills and ranks his or her academic achievements with other students in the same grade.

  • ISEE Lower Level: for students currently in grades 4-5
  • ISEE Middle Level: for students currently in grade 6-7
  • ISEE Upper Level: for students currently in grade 8-11


The Measure of Academic Progress (MAP) exam is an online test used by international schools as part of their admissions process. MAP uses a computer adaptive system which adjusts to each student’s performance level, creating a personalised assessment that accurately measures a student’s academic level regardless of grade.



The School And College Ability Test (SCAT) is an online multiple choice test administered by the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth (CTY). The SCAT is an above-grade level test which means it is very important to prep your child for the harder questions.
