First round of offers are on the 8th. You will get your results (how well you did on the exam) on the 20th :)

I pretty much did the same as most people trying out for my school. About 8-10 people did better than my group and it just comes down to luck in the end I guess. I did well in rc and good in verbal, but maths and nr went not so good (I guessed quite a few). Do you have an estimate as to what time the results will come?

Oh yeah, true true. Do you know how exactly does the 5% rule work??
Nearly all the ppl from my school who did the exam (around 30 or more) and itís very competitive
how many do u think they  pick in schools like mine? Iíve heard around 10 (in total) get picked to the schools and not 1 school. Iíve heard some situations like mine where they came from competitive schools and they didnít get in.

-From what Iíve heard -
I think it all depends on how well other ppl did and how you did & thereís no standard for this exam. Superior could be like 35. Because obviously thereís around 4k people who do this exam every year and some only come with no studying, and some study for years for this exact exam.  This exam is a lot pressure but thereís so many smarter people out there that did not sit this exam, maybe because they didnít know or donít find the schools interesting something like that. They basically want people from only the people who sat the test. So those who get in arnt the smartest people out there (not in a shady way). But the way they pick from competitive schools are unfair and should give more chances. Tbh I think they just want variety of people from different schools.

Yeah the results will be out next week. Do you think the rejection comes out more later or?? Tbh itís not the end of the world but my current school is so not it.This was 1 of my escape plans. Itís gonna be tough to recover from. But failure is the motivation to success, so Iíll keep going! 😀

The 5% rule means that only 5% of your year level can get into the 4 schools. This is to prevent a saturation of students from competitive schools. The side effect is that it makes it easier for those in less competitive schools to get in.

You're right. The exam scores are relative, but they also have a set passing grade, hence why not all of the 5% of your year level might get in.

I have a question for you. Iíve seen you replying in a few posts from awhile back lol. But do they send rejection letters along with the first round offers? And do u get a rejection letter before recieving 2nd round /3rd?

Yep. From what I heard, you get rejection before the other offers. Everyone accepted gets emails first, then the rejection emails go out, then the rounds proceed.

It's the total in yr 8, so if you have 300 kids, then 15 can get in at max (including PD now), so if 50 are trying out, then you have a 30% chance of getting in.

The results are coming out tomorrow from 9am to 12am I think. Best of luck to everyone who sat the exam and I hope we all get into the school of our choice.
