A benchmark test is a previously-issued SSAT exam that is used to determine potential test scores on the actual test. Once an application is received, applicants will receive a follow-up email with instructions for registering for the test. The tests are administered by A Better Chance and usually take place in April and May. Applicants who live within 50 miles of a scheduled testing site are expected to sit for this exam.
