I know by now you are working very hard to get ready for the SHSAT coming up in a few weeks. The one thing you don’t want to forget is to REGISTER FOR THE TEST! This year, for the first time, parents are solely responsible for registering their child for the 2019 exam. The link above gives you all the details.
In this post, I wanted to share some commonly asked questions so everyone is clear:
Who is eligible to take the SHSAT?
All current 8th graders, and first-time 9th graders (regardless of whether you go to a public, private, or parochial school in one of the five Boroughs) can sign up to take the SHSAT. Long Island residents are not allowed to sign up to take the exam.
How do homeschooled students sign up?
Visit your family welcome center for the account creation code so you can sign up.
What about Students with IEP’s, 504 plans or English Language Learners?
Make sure you will apply. You will take the exam on a different day on November 3rd or November 18th.
What if you moved to NYC after November 1st?
You will take the SHSAT in August right before 9th grade. You can register at your local Family Welcome Center.
