TJ Results for Class of 2022

We have results for Fall 2017 TJ prep class — TJ Class of 2022.  This was the first class we prepared for the new TJ admissions test.

As of May 2,  we have heard from 19/20 students who took our Sunday classes: 16 made 1st cut, and of those, ten (10) made 2nd cut.  [All together at least 20 of our students made 2nd cut; two from our summer class, some who came sporadically during the week in the fall, and some who attended just our essay SIS workshops].

Explanation of statistics

The percent for the Form N, Diagnostic, and Super Score tests listed below are percent of correctly answered questions.  The percent for the new TJ test appears to be relative to the class of students, not percent of questions answered correctly.  We are including a sample of scores to give parents an idea of how practice tests are a predictor of scores on the actual test.

Form N is the at home math test available for free off our TJ Prep Webpage.

The Full TJ Diagnostic Test and all practice tests are composed of ACT science, ACT reading passages, and old style SAT questions.

We would like to thank all our students who helped contribute to this analysis by submitting their scores to Kate Dalby at kvs@katedalby.com  Whether you made 2nd cut, were waitlisted, made first cut,  or didn’t even make first cut, your experience helps us better prepare students for this important admissions process.  We would also like to know how our preparation helped and also what we can do better next time around.

Thank you.

Kate Dalby

Didn’t make the cut?  Read on!

I just got off the phone with Jessica Edwards’ dad.  Jessica had made first cut back in 2013, but while an excellent candidate she did not make the 2nd cut for TJ admissions.  She went to St Stephen’s St Agnes and graduated last year.  She is finishing her first year at Harvard!  Apparently she took to heart the quote “that which does not kill me makes me stronger”.
