Print out the test(s):
 Students in grades 2, 3, or 4 in their regular school should start with the test for levels 2, 3, or 4. They should aim to solve at least 80% of the test to demonstrate their understanding of key topics. If the test is too challenging and unfamiliar, they should try the test for the level below. If it feels too easy, they can attempt the test for the level above. Remember to show your work.
 Students in grades 5 to 10 in their regular school should begin with the test for levels 4 to 9 (one level below their regular grade). If the test is too difficult and the material is unfamiliar, they should consider the test for the level below. If it is too easy, they can take the test for the level above. Again, showing your work is important.

Choose a quiet, comfortable location to take the test.

Take the test when wellrested and hydrated, without using external aids like computers.

Interview Expectations:
After grading the tests, some students (not all) will be invited for an interview via Zoom or Google Meet. The purpose of the interview is to assess their understanding and ability to explain their solutions. Interviews can range from 5 to 30 minutes. Our instructors are friendly and aim to place students in the class that best fits their needs.
Why a Placement Test?
The test ensures students are placed appropriately in our advanced math curriculum. SchoolNova's levels may not align with the student's grade in regular school. We prioritize understanding of essential topics over pure math ability.
About the Math Placement Test:
 The test is not pass/fail.
 It is not multiplechoice.
 Results determine the student's placement based on their knowledge of essential topics, not overall math abilities.
Test Duration:
The test generally takes less than an hour, though there is no strict time limit.
