The New York City Specialized High School Admissions Test is an exam eighth and ninth graders take as part of their applications to several specific schools in New York City. This test is taken once a year and is usually offered in late October for 8th graders and mid-November for 9th graders. (Though the 9th grade exam provides a second chance for those not initially accepted, it is not recommended to wait until 9th grade to take the test.) It is a 2 hour 30 minute exam that covers Verbal skills and Math problem solving.

6. Does my child turn in homework on time?
