Hi, I am going to the sydney boys year 11 2023 entrance exam on thursday and was wondering if anybody has had experience with their entrance exam. Like what does it test you on, the difficulty, number of people who get shortlisted, etc. Thank you!

Former SB student here. I had a couple of friends gain entry into Sydney Boys back in 2020, and from their experience the entry exam was very simple. It was no longer than half an hour and as long as you are not half bad at math you could easily get 100 percent. Most of the content is from the year 10 5.2 syllabus. Mind you, this was a while back so the format and difficulty may have changed but I still wouldn't worry too much. In terms of how many students gain entry into year 11 at SBHS, its generally around 10 students. Good Luck :D

SBHS is usually quite generous when it comes to placements in years 8-11, since there is a max grade size of around 210-220 students, and usually a couple of students leave to schools like JRAHS, BHHS, NSBHS and some students get scholarships at private schools.

all we need to do is get good in the test and they should be able to consider us

well personally for me i have friends at sydney boys and it really fits my um how do i say it my personality plus its always been my dream school. so definitely Sydney boys

but when your looking towards like good academics and a consistent school with a top notch hsc rank NORTH SYDNEY BOYS definitely wins plus you can compete on sport on wednesday so they are pretty well allrounded
