Information on the Tests

In order for a student to be eligible to take the CTY Greece Programs, one should participate in the Center's exams that take place every year in different cities around Greece. For foreign students this qualification can be acquired through the JHU Center.

CTY Greece uses two tests, developed and scored by the Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth: the School and College Ability Test (SCAT) and the Spatial Test Battery (STB) which measure verbal, quantitative, and spatial reasoning ability and are in Greek. Each student can take either or both tests.

The exam cost per student per test is 30 euros and it is non refundable.



There are three levels: Elementary ( for grades 2 & 3), Intermediate ( for grades 4 & 5) and Advanced ( for grades 6-9)

The testing process takes approximately 60 minutes from start to finish.

The Verbal section measures a student’s understanding of the meaning of words and verbal reasoning ability.

The Mathematics section measures a student’s understanding of fundamental number operations. 



The STB is an alternative test for students in grades 6–9 who wish to enroll in a CTY Greece math or science courses. It is not for students who wish to enroll in a humanities course.

The testing process is approximately 75 minutes in length from start to finish. 

The STB consists of four sections: Visual Memory Learning, Surface Development, Block Rotations, Visual Memory Recall
