Hi! does anyone know how many people sit the year 11 and entry and roughly how many people get in. finally, how many sups does one need to get an interview?

Thank you  ;D
It is dependent on the school you attend, but roughly 2000-ish students sit the test and around 200-250 get in. The rule of thumb is you need to get an interview in order to get in. Normally you should try to aim for 2-3 superiors just to be safe for an interview.
VCE 2021.

Economics 50 RAW (Fingers crossed)

Hi, as a current year 10 student at jmss Iím not too sure about the number of people who usually apply for year 11, but this year there were 22 new year 11s I believe. From what Iíve heard, between 10 and 30 usually. Best of luck!

quick question. for the practice tests I've been doing (I'm trying to get into year 10 2022), I've noticed that the maths questions are all a bit like worded problems, and they're more numerical if anything. does anyone know whether the actual test is just a bunch of worded problems or just straight-up questions and equations?

Who is trying for the year 11 entry into JMSS, entry in 2022. Any tips for such people applying and content to cover. Also can anyone provide anymore information about this, any advice? Also I would like to know how many people apply for the year 11 entry and how many of these people get selected?

Best of luck to all others applying! 8) ;D :D

Hey :D. As someone also planning on doing the year 11 entry had the same question as you but fortunately, I was able to go on the school tour and ask one of the teacher and normally it's between 180-200 students sit the year 11 test. I just heard that restrictions have been reinstated so does anyone know if we will have to do the test online (year 11 entry on the 29th)? As of writing this the test is only four days away so wish all of you guys the best of luck and I'm excited to see everyone on the day :)

Hi there, I am also very excited for the exam and I also don't have much information regarding the test, if it is online or it will be at the school as planned or if it will be going ahead at all?
If you have information about this please let us know, any information is appreciated.
Thank you, Best of Luck to all my fellow peers!!

1. I have heard a lot about how in the interviews youre supposed to bring awards, certificates etc. I cant think of any that I have and will that be a major issue?
2. If I just bring my reports would I most likley not get accepted or has someone thats enrolled at JMSS done this?
3. I am getting told that what people would do in my position would make things up and is that something common in JMSS interview?
4. Also is there only 1 interview where you are by yourself and how many teachers interview you?

Have done any volunteer work before? Or any extracurrics? I think presenting stuff like that will help. There are lots of forums from years before abt this. I've heard that not bringing any extra "achievements" won't help impress the interviewers much. And hey, there's a long time till the interviews, so why not start something now? (or after the exam)
 good luck tho :)

ps. as alomoac said - best not make things up. Them figuring it out is a 95% chance.

After the interview so you could still get in even if ur not quite as smart as them through interview performance (for me there were SO MANY smart ppl from my school who didnít pass interview)

quick question. for the practice tests I've been doing (I'm trying to get into year 10 2022), I've noticed that the maths questions are all a bit like worded problems, and they're more numerical if anything. does anyone know whether the actual test is just a bunch of worded problems or just straight-up questions and equations?

For the most part it is just straight up questions and equations in the math bcoz u donít have enough time to read through an explanation and then also do the math. Worded questions appear in the numerical reasoning.

Not sure what u could do for the test (probably just cover all the yr 10 and some 11 stuff if u can) but be prepared if u get an interview bcoz for the yr 11 ones they tend to focus more on what your plans for vce are and after school to make sure moving schools wonít negatively affect u). Usually theyíd give out up to 25 spots for yr 11 entry coz the yr levels max is usually 225 but they already accepted 225 ppl so my best bet is theyíll aim to go to approx. 250

Hey :D. As someone also planning on doing the year 11 entry had the same question as you but fortunately, I was able to go on the school tour and ask one of the teacher and normally it's between 180-200 students sit the year 11 test.

If u guys still havenít heard any info yet then the test will definitely be postponed rather than be online again so you have a few more precious days to revise. You will get an email a day or two before whenever it is explaining everything (Iím kinda assuming as it was supposed to be tmr u guys already know)

1. I have heard a lot about how in the interviews youre supposed to bring awards, certificates etc. I cant think of any that I have and will that be a major issue?
2. If I just bring my reports would I most likley not get accepted or has someone thats enrolled at JMSS done this?
3. I am getting told that what people would do in my position would make things up and is that something common in JMSS interview?
4. Also is there only 1 interview where you are by yourself and how many teachers interview you?

I wouldnít advise only bringing your reports - even if u donít currently do much stuff you can mention any sports/instruments/or co curricular things you have done in the past (they donít nose into whether or not u still do or how good u got). Shoot me a message if u get through to interviews and still need to find some stuff. Unless ur an amazing liar (and Iím talking professional acting skills) donít make things up. They can tell and u get immediately disadvantaged. Last yr there was just you and 2 interviewers (one taking notes and one asking the questions) but usually they do a bunch of group problem solving things beforehand where teachers walk around and take notes and then do the interview.


Sorry I havenít answered anything for ages, I kinda took a little break :)
