How is the SSAT scored?

The scoring of the SSAT is as follows: You get one point (+1 point) for each correct answer, and you lose one quarter of a point(-0.25 point) for each incorrect answer. Omitted answers have no effect (0 points) on your score. Calculation of right answers minus one fourth of wrong answers yields your raw score. Do not worry that your standing on the exam may suffer in comparison to students in other grades taking the same upper-level exam. SSAT scores are scaled and reported in percentiles that compare only students within the same age and grade group.
