Selective School Entry

Preparation for selective school entry to government schools is available from year 5 to 10 and is specific for each school, such as Melbourne, MacRob, Suzanne Cory and Nossal Highs, John Monash Science School and SEAL and ALP schools or similar tests.

Our main aim is to **make a difference** to student abilities and examination performance, which is why we work with individual students and no more than 6 students per teacher. We determine a student’s current abilities and customise the teaching, ensuring that we cover everything required for the specific exam, targeting areas that will assist each student.

**Course Components**

Subjects studied can include reading comprehension, mathematics & problem solving, writing, verbal reasoning, numerical reasoning, abstract reasoning, humanities and science for year 8, 9 and 10.

**Course Structure**

The course is taught in modular format which consists of 8 weekly one and a half hour sessions working through content that builds skills, provides familiarity and improves exam strategy. Students have access to the online learning site which provides for greater familiarity and challenge. Students may accelerate the module by attending for 3 hours over 4 weeks. At the end of the first module the student completes a practice exam. Using all of the information from the module combined with the practice exam realistic advice is provided regarding progress and the benefits of a second module.
