The SSAT is an unlimited number of tests per student per year. The SSAT is offered several times a year, so students can take it as many times as they want.

SSAT Elementary Level exam structure lasts 2 hours 5 minutes for 5 sections with a 15-minute break after the second section.

  • Reading: 28 questions – 30 minutes.
  • Writing Sample: 15 minutes (No grading)
  • Experimental: 15-17 questions – 15 minutes (No grading)
