Title: Selective entry high school practice tests
Post by: MemeMaster on January 08, 2019, 10:49:41 pm
This question is for people who have already sat the test and used the practice tests here. (Year 9 entry)

https://www.education.vic.gov.au/parents/learning/Pages/selective-entry-practice.aspx#
My question is that were  the actual tests similar to the practice tests given on the official website as I did the tests and found them relatively easy (especially verbal and numerical reasoning)
Thx to anyone who contributes 8)

edit: also, if anyone did spectrum tuition, were they accurate in terms of the types of questions asked in the actual exams

I sat the test this year and imo, they were nowhere close to the actual exam. They were much harder and had more complex patterns, harder texts to understand and definitely harder questions for mathematics.
