Hey everybody,
I made an account on ATAR Notes today to ask this question:
Have you guys got any good tips on how to complete the mathematical (mathematics, numerical reasoning) tests in time or to improve the time it takes to do questions?
I find myself struggling with the time aspect for those two but am not worried about the rest as I attend James An (did my last test this sat) and always get the highest category. On the James An mock test, also got superiors for the English stuff. I'm atrocious at the math under pressure and on the mock test got low averages as I had woken up late and was completely stressed out. Usually, in the normal classes we do, I score high average and/or average. The few instances that I do not score between those two is if I get a score higher, or if I daydream during the test.
Sincerely,
A fretting thirteen year-old. :-\
Damn, I went to James An aswell. I usually just skip the hard, lengthy questions and try to find the easy ones (which I find are mostly at the back). Btw, I  usually get 2 sups for both Maths and Numerical.

I got no superiors from what i remember i think i got 2 averages and then 3 high averages or smth like that but yea. My 1st preference was MacRob. Btw it also depends on the school if its really good and has competition. I went to Glen Waverley Secondary College.

Hi,

James an and Henderson really helped me and many others I know. Although I didn't make it through many people tell me that James an really helps with time and you can get faster by doing tests. They provide you with resources and online practice tests but they do not teach. I would not recommend this tuition for people who do not self study but other than that this is the best tuition to go to. Henderson mocks are also pretty good as it creates the same atmosphere as the actual test and helps you become better at solving problems under strictly timed conditions. However, Hendersons are quite expensive averaging 200-300 dollars per mock. I prefer James an but it depends what tuition is closest to you. What I learnt is it does not matter how many tuitions you attend it depends on your willingness to study for the exam.

Hoped it help, MAN0033

Omg my selective is coming in 3 months, im so nervous!
I'm really weak in maths and i dont think i will be able to make it in.
The things that you talked in maths like the 'SOHCAHTOA' i don't know how to do.
I went for tutoring for 1 year now (selective intensive training, and all sorts of other training session), but i feel like im getting worse.
I really want to make it in.  :-[ :-[

Purchase a year 10 or 9 Cambridge Maths Book, work though the book.
All you really need to get better at the maths section imo.  ;)

Edit: While you work through the book use Khan Academy ! Great resource. Also, browse youtube cause there are some really great vids and teachers on there.

Hi guys, I have a friend who is trying for jmss year 11 (she doesn't have an acc so I'm asking for her). She was wondering if the school will allow her to do 3/4 chem in year 11 if she did 1/2 in year 10 at her previous school..........

Back in 2016, there were a couple of year 11s completing 3/4 chem with the year 12s. JMSS tends to be quite strict with you completing subjects that are not either methods or biology in year 11. That being said, if she is faring quite well in chemistry and can prove it to JMSS, then there should really be no problem.
