We help students from range of schools and backgrounds to prepare for Selective School entrance exams in New South Wales, SEAL, scholarship tests, entry tests for private schools and other similar tests. Subjects include English, Mathematics, General Ability, and Written Expression. 

Selective High School Placement Test is an ability test which can differentiate accurately between students of very high ability. It is rare for any candidate to score full marks in any of its components.

The test is developed by an external test development company under contract to the Department of Education. It is a secure test and, apart from the sample test papers which have been published online, tests are not made public before or after the test session. The test does not usually contain any questions used in previous years. Parents are responsible to apply with BOSTES for the selective test exam in year 5.

We Solve Your Problem

It is difficult for students and parents to prepare for this examinations. Due to the competitive nature of these tests, it is essential to set up regular practice sessions to improve children's skills gradually. Parents need as much guidance in this area as they can possibly get.

Successful students attend the opportunity class training for the duration of Years 3 and 4 to gain a place in an opportunity class. It is a two-year training program. In the majority of cases students who chose to excess some training class prior to this test has better chance of getting into this placements.
