We offer Selective and Scholarship Test Preparation on a ONE ON ONE basis.
Selective & Scholarship Test Preparation
Selective high schools provide an educationally enriching environment for high achieving students. We help prepare students to sit for selective and scholarship exams by familiarising them with the prescribed examination structure, allowing students to apply their knowledge and skills to the formal structure of the exam.
We offer students important opportunities to gain:
• Confidence and experience with exam formats
• Exposure to typical exam style questions
• Outstanding skills in study and time management
• Experience in applying their skills to formal examination settings
• Access to helpful feedback to further develop and refine exam techniques
Types of Selective Tests:
Primary School Entry Tests
We help students prepare for Opportunity Class (OC) in New South Wales for entry into Year 5 and 6. Subjects include English, Mathematics, and General Ability. The NSW Opportunity Class (OC) Test contain 35 questions that are to be completed within 30 minutes, and a mixture of questions in Mathematics, General Ability and Reading Comprehension.
High School Entry Tests
We also help prepare for Selective Schools in New South Wales, scholarship tests, entry tests for private schools and other similar tests. The NSW Selective High School Test examines four key subject areas, including English, Mathematics, General Ability and Written Expression.
Who should join Improve and Excel Tutoring?
Our courses are helpful to students in Year 3 through to Year 7 who desire to improve their ability in preparing for these selective tests. Given the competitiveness of these tests, it is essential that parents and students set up regular practice sessions to improve skills frequently and gradually. Since lessons are ONE ON ONE, we tailor our teaching to address the key areas your child needs help with.
When should I sign up?
Due to the highly competitive nature of the entrance examination, it is advisable that students begin preparation well in advance, a minimum of 6 months is good, 12-24 months being ideal.
