Which one tends to be more difficult to get admission into?

Also which highschool tends to have a more elite reputation? (if at all)

The Hunter College High School test is "harder" than the SHSAT. As well the Hunter test is taken in grade 6 whereas the SHSAT is taken in Grade 8 and Grade 9. As well, you're comparing seat counts that are magnitudes different by a factor of dozens.

Re "elite" I don't like the word. That aside, something can be said of both. The equally pressing question is not just which school is best for your child but also is your child best for a school. It becomes non-trivial to answer in a sentence.
