    HCES is now open to applicants from all five boroughs, no longer limited to just Manhattan residents.

    "Only NYC* residents may apply and enroll into HCES. Parents must be able to document their primary home address in NYC as of the date of application and must remain residents of NYC as long as the child attends HCES.

    *NYC is defined as the five boroughs and does not include Westchester, Nassau, and Suffolk counties."

    Thank you! Does Hunter target a fairly even age split across the class?

    The first round test is scored based on age. I would imagine admissions considers each child's age for the second round. At least based on this thread, kids born late in the year are getting admitted.

    No to fairly even age splits. This is 2021. The next group of students will likely be racially diverse and from all 5 boroughs. Those are stats that can be clearly visible and be bragged about. Like any other grade in any other school, you will have kids born in the same calendar year but up to 364 days apart.

    Does anyone know how many kids applied in 2020?

    1900 last go through; they were hitting about 2500 previously

    What determines the length of the test? I saw on their site it should take anywhere from 30-60 minutes. One parent told me it took her son 40 minutes, another said 60 minutes. And I'm curious to know why one was longer than the other. Thanks.

    I don't necessarily see the length of time as anything as one kid might take their time and another not, one kid be uncomfortable and another not, etc. My own daughter when she took the NYC DOE G&T test sat there and refused to answer all questions and so it was quick as can be. Now, I think the person administering it could have done something to change that dynamics, but she didn't see that as her job, and I can see that too, and so, that was that. So I'm sure things such as this and others apply or don't apply

    I once heard that the subtests end when they get three in a row wrong. So would length correlate to how they do? Or is that information wrong. Thanks in advance.
