    Selective test

    I'm in yr 10 going to yr 11 next year and I want to try out for the selective test ..I've never done this but I want to make it into hurlstone. I know academic report, extra curriculum and admission test is based on whether u make it in.. my report isn't good but it isn't bad XD... I don't do any extra curriculums .. so I'm wondering what are my chances XD.. I'm confident bc I'm great at writing essaysand math tho (for the admission)... I also wanna know what topics are included in this exam and what topics are covered in math section XD... thankss.. Really grateful if someone answers me!!! T.T what should I study for????!!

    Re: Selective test

    DW I got into Normanhurst AND Manly for Year 11 Entry, and my report was sorta normal. I got horrible for English and fairly good for Maths and Electronics, but the rest were mediocre. I did 2 extracurriculars - Robotics and programming, but we got nowhere in Robotics. (lol)
    I made it in extremely easily, so looking at your conditions, you can make it in if u study so dw.
    GL tho. Btw transitioning to Year 11 at selective made my life a bit hard. I ain't used to the extreme competitive study environments so... Either way gl.

    Re: Selective test

    I cant remember. But unless Hurlstone uses HAST, don't worry if u don't finish. Especially maths. I got AMC prize but I didn't finish my Normo or NSB maths exam. I got into Normo and I still got close to NSB. (My english killed me tho in NSB)

    Re: Selective test

    HAST is the Higher Ability Selection Test, basically to test how academically gifted you are. It's split into mathematics/science, writing, reading and comprehension, and general ability which is basically figuring out patterns. If it is HAST, the selection process is against the others taking it, not how well you've done. I took it last year for Girraween and I thought I did horrible, but I did end up getting in even when I was a reserve. Just gotta believe hard enough, and if it was meant to be then it'll be
