Qualifying

Enrollment for the 2014-2015 7th Grade Talent Search will begin August 1.

Do I Qualify?

  • You must be in the seventh grade (or a current eighth grader who skipped seventh grade).
  • You must have a qualifying test score. Note that this test score must be included on the talent search enrollment form.

Can't find a qualifying test? Send an email to qualifying_test@tip.duke.edu to see if a test is accepted.

Participants must score at or above the 95th percentile on an accepted subtest or total battery/composite of a grade-level standardized achievement test, aptitude test, mental-ability test, approved state criterion-referenced test OR have a standard score at or above 125 on the full scale or composite score on an IQ test that is no more than two years old. Scores from either of the two most recent test administrations are accepted. For most seventh grade students this represents scores from either the sixth grade or the fifth grade. Students need to qualify in only one of the accepted composite or subtest areas.
