Students must have missed the score within a certain range and meet specific eligibility requirements, such as low-income status.Essentially, it is a second opportunity for students who did not gain acceptance the first time.

Dr. Ivan Khan supports City Council Candidates in favor of preserving the SHSAT – candidate positions will affect South Asian students’ access to Specialized High Schools

New York, New York — The Chinese American Citizens Alliance of Greater New York (CACAGNY) recently surveyed Chinese American Candidates running for office in the New York City September 12th Primary, asking whether they presently support keeping the single merit based exam to the Specialized Highs Schools of New York City. Currently, the SHSAT is the only way to gain admission into the Specialized High Schools such as Stuyvesant, Bronx Science and Brooklyn Tech. These are the country’s best public high schools and predominantly Asian, however, they have come under attack for not being more diverse. Several elected officials claim the exam should be eliminated because it is unfair and preventing diversity at these schools.
