Despite sitting for these exams, prospective applicants are required to score above a certain scaled score to make a cut into their preferred choice of Specialized high school.
The cutoff score for each of the eight Specialized high schools changes every year but just slightly so students who sit must do better than the previous years.
Some of the schools revise their cutoff upwards while others revise theirs a little downwards. With this in mind, let’s get to the SHSAT cutoff scores for 2022.
Every year, about 29,000 students sit for the SHSAT exams with the hopes of making it into one of the Specialized high schools but only a handful who are able to beat the cutoff scores from the eight schools are able to make it in.
After making the cut, the test scores are arranged in order (highest to lowest cutoff score). Students are then placed based on their performance and the available seats in their preferred choice of school.
