Quite relevant tests. I wish I could have provided these tests to my son earlier.

Very affordable and challenging tests.
Selective High School Placement
As a parent I tried one test, very challenging. All parents should try it first before pressurising their child for the selective exam. I respect my child's hard work.
Selective High School Placement
My child enjoys doing numeracy questions. His numeracy performance in NAPLAN improved from simply reviewing the detailed solutions provided.
My child got a triangle band in NAPLAN just from practicing your tests, nothing else!
NotesEdu has provided me with special tips and tricks I have not learnt anywhere else. I was then able to answer questions faster and improve my marks.
Got placement in our first choice of OC school, thanks to the NotesEdu Team for providing relevant practice questions.
Opportunity Class
The questions are pretty hard but by practicing such questions, my daughter's confidence significantly improved.
