Duke TIP


To enroll, students must:

  • be in seventh grade (current eighth graders who skipped seventh grade may also participate)
  • meet the test score requirements

Test Score Requirements

Students must have one of the following (available from your school's counselor.):

  • 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 fifth grade or the sixth grade. Students need to qualify in only one of the accepted composite or subtest areas.
