2021 Selective High School Practice Tests

Selective High Schools offer an extra challenge for academically gifted children. Students who want to enrol in these schools go through a highly competitive exam held every year in March. The selective test consists of four tests: thinking skills, mathematical reasoning, reading and writing. These tests evaluate student’s ability across critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Their performance in these tests reflects a student's suitability to work at a higher academic level that is provided at selective high schools.

Selective Thinking Skills Tests consists of questions from three categories. The first category consists of logical reasoning questions (strengthen/weaken questions, deductions, conditional reasoning, flaw and mistakes, Venn diagrams and more). The second category consists of analytical reasoning questions (ordering and orientation question, probability, algebraic relationship, permutations and combinations and data analysis). The third category consists of spatial reasoning questions (combining shapes, patterns and object views). The Selective Mathematical Reasoning Test consists of questions from three categories: Number/Algebra; Measurement/Geometry; and Statistics/Probability. The Selective Reading Test consists of exam-style questions based on text passages across imaginative (creative), informative and persuasive texts. Selective Writing Test consists of a persuasive or creative writing prompt. NotesEdu practice tests cover all the above areas of testing in depth. Get Selective Premium Today.

Wonderful portal for kids to practice, learn and improve on their ability. The tests gave my kid confidence to face the exam without the fear. NotesEdu's range of tests helped my child to familiarise themself with varied types of questions.

R.R. (Parent's Initials for Privacy)
As a parent, I tried one test and it was very challenging. All parents should try it first before pressuring their child for the selective exam. I respect my child's hard work and thank the team for helping my daughter to get into Sydney Girls.

M.H. (Parent's Initials for Privacy)
Perfected my time management skills and the concept explanations for each question helped me navigate harder questions on exam day. I got into my first preference and going to Girraween High School next year.
