We recommend taking the Level 4A Placement Test to determine if your student is ready to take Beast Academy Level 4.

Solutions to the placement test are found at the end of the test. Your student may also take the Level 4B, 4C, or 4D placement tests to determine readiness per unit. Get the guide books for sure, because they are endearing and interesting and adorable and wonderful and they make your kid fall in love with doing math (even if they already love math).
