About the NYC G&T Test Level CNYC Gifted and Talented programs are designed specifically to provide gifted children with an advanced education. Gifted programs offer students higher learning at an accelerated rate. Due to the limited number of seats in these gifted programs, the NYC Department of Education developed the NYC Gifted and Talented Assessment as a way to assess giftedness in students. This test is used to determine eligibility for NYC Gifted and Talented programs for gifted children and is used as an admissions tool in a majority of New York City's 32 districts.
The NYC Gifted and Talented Test Level C is administered to students in 2nd grade, for entry into 3rd grade. The test consists of two basic sections: a verbal section, made up of questions from the Otis-Lennon School Ability Test (OLSAT) and a nonverbal section, made up of questions from the Naglieri Nonverbal Ability Test (NNAT). Each section of the test accounts for exactly half of a child’s overall NYC Gifted and Talented Test score. Learn more about how the NYC G&T test is scored.
Placing into an NYC Gifted and Talented program has become increasingly difficult. Spots in gifted programs are limited and competition for these coveted seats has increased over the years. When first implemented, children needed to score in the the 97th percentile or higher to be eligible for a gifted program. However, in recent years, with competition at an all-time high, there are children who score in the 99th percentile who are not offered admission. Under these current, competitive circumstances, preparing for the NYC Gifted and Talented Test has become essential.
