When and how often do students take the Lower Level ISEE?
As of fall 2016, students can now take the Lower Level ISEE up to three (3) times a year but only one (1) time during pre-defined three-month periods (example of 4th grade student applying to 5th grade):
Spring semester of their 3rd grade year (April to July)
Fall semester of their 4th grade year (August to November)
Spring semester of their 4th grade year (December to March)
Parents can also now review scores and decide whether or not they want to submit them to schools (Before fall 2016 students could really only take the exam once and that score always got sent to schools without parent review).
