The average student preparing with Piqosity reports that they spent between 30 and 40 hours in total studying for the ISEE. However, how long your student will need to study for the ISEE depends on three primary factors:
The academic competitiveness of the schools to which your child is applying.
Your child’s baseline score after taking a diagnostic test.
Your child’s desired score.
For example, an average student applying to a large private school that caters to students of different abilities will not need to study nearly as much as an average student applying to a small private school that prides itself for academic rigor.
