ENGLISH & MATHS Trial Test

The English & Maths Trial Test is a 50-week preparatory programme designed to assist students who are seeking top class placement and scholarships in a High School.

The program intends to provide students with the opportunity to develop knowledge, skills and confidence in areas of English and Mathematics. The materials used in this program have been designed to familiarise candidates with the format and content of the actual examination.

HOW IT WORKS

Students will attend to 100 English and Mathematics questions each week. That is over 5,000 practice test questions over the 50-week program!

Each week, students will spend 1 hour and 20 minutes completing both English and Mathematics Trial test papers. In the remaining time (1 hour and 40 minutes), explanations and solutions to challenging questions will be taught explicitly by highly experienced and qualified teachers.

Care has been taken to ensure the exam format and questions are consistent to that expected in the actual examination. In addition, computerised student reports are produced weekly for careful monitoring of student progress, hence providing a close indication of their performance in the actual examination.

WHAT IS THE GENERAL ABILITY?

General Ability (G.A.) refers to a child's ability to think critically, quickly and accurately. It is often referred to as General Aptitude or IQ (Intelligence Quotient). They all refer to much the same thing.

G.A. testing provides an indication of intellectual aptitude that is important for both academic performance and assessment. Candidates are assessed on their ability to demonstrate general knowledge, thinking, reasoning and problem solving skills through a variety of items that involve verbal reasoning, abstract reasoning, spatial-visual and quantitative reasoning. These are fundamental concepts that underpin General Ability type questions.

The General Ability Trial Test is a 50-week preparatory program designed to assist students who are seeking top class placement and scholarships in a High School.

HOW IT WORKS?

Each week, students will have the opportunity to familiarise themselves with the format and content of the General Ability Selective School Test. They will spend 40 minutes completing the G.A. test papers and have answers and solutions fully explained in the remaining time.

Care has been taken to ensure the exam format and questions are consistent to that expected in the actual examination, thereby giving students the confidence to respond positively to the actual examination.

In addition, computerised student reports are produced weekly for careful monitoring of student progress, hence providing a close indication of their performance in the actual examination.
